Title says it all. While going through the gears the guage says I'm in neutral when I go through the gears?

Is this while riding, or sitting still?

Sensor grounds to shift drum when on neutral right? You are just grounded all the time I guess

I would first suspect bad sensor, or other short in wiring. but it is just the idiot light and part of the safety switches for starting the engine. if you can live with it, Iwouldn't worry about it at this time
