Dim neutral light

On the cluster. Stays dim, regardless of neutral status

mine did that right before my sensor **** the bed, take the cable off the sensor and touch it to one of the engine bolts, if you get full brightness on the light, then ya you need a new sensor.

Green wire connected to the bottom back of the engine?

If it's the light green wire, no change with engine ground.

Wonder if the other cluster bulbs need to be in for proper voltage... I'll go try that...

yea i really don't know what to tell ya, before i got a new(used) sensor my light would only come on if the engine was cold, once it warmed up it wouldn't come on(that plus a sticky clutch switch caused a few "omg why wont the bike start" moments) or it would just barley come on.

I'll opt for a new switch and see how it goes.

Not too concerning though.

Can you read the voltage at the light? I haven't had mine apart so I'm guessing here. Or see how it lights a test light with different points for ground. Maybe check the continuity of the wires?

the neutral light has 12v on it whenever the ign is on, if I recall. the switch (sensor) completes the circuit to ground.

the other lights should have no bearing on it all.
