Wiring Woes... when i jiggle my tank the Neutral light goes off

When i jiggle my tank the Neutral light goes off and the bike wont start. If jiggle it again the light comes on and the bike runs. Is it something in the main wiring harness?

Maybe your wires are pulling out of the ignition switch??

It's not uncommon for a problem to develop in the harness at the bend around the neck and into the ignition switch....

Just replace harness with part from EBay.



































(yes, the ebay thing is just a joke)

The wiring harness is also prone to fraying appart under the Fuel tank, where the seat and tank join. you ave a couple of options to fix this problem. The first and best and easiest is to replace the harness. Another is to bypass the neutral safety switch, and lastly, is to run a new wire for the NSS

check the two bullet connectors at the plug-socket brack under the tank. The two wires are colored brown/white and white if they do not make good connection then the bike won't start. These two can become burnt, just wiggle loose or break at the connector. Replace the connectors (do not have to be bullet type but must be fully insulated when connected) if you find a problem.
