Saw a couple drops on the floor. Looks like there's a drip coming out where this little wire connects to a bolt or something? Any ideas?

Hopefully nothing bad wrong?

I know nothing about that switch or how it works. Is there a way to fix it or does it leak from time to time? First leak in 6 months.

compared your pic with same on my bike.. it really to me looks like something hit that sensor.

on mine, the connector comes straight out (perpendicular to the engine/trans case) before the 90 degree bend.. yours looks like its bent 'up' some.

replacement of the switch would be in order I would think

Yeah, thats the neutral switch...you can try snugging it down a little, or next time you change the oil, take it out and put some thread sealer on it...

Went and checked it again. The wire pulls right off like it has no grip on it. Just falls off. The little switch is crooked coming out of the nut and pieces fell off. Like maybe a black o-ring around the switch or something that corroded and crumbled? I looked on cheap cycle but couldn't find a neutral switch or wire.

Awesome! Thanks for the link.

If I pull the switch I'm assuming oil will pour out? I guess it'll be ok as long as it doesn't start leaking bad til next change?
