Hello my name is ***** ***** I will assist you. the problem seems to be the neutral safety switch on the throttle levers. Make sure that the connections under the throttles are properly connected, if they are you would need to check the switch as it may be defective. Try spraying some contact cleaner to it prior to replacing it.

IF you need further assistance let me know.
