Initially, have you tried / attempted to start with the clutch lever pulled in and the side stand folded up?

I have done that I have no neutral light at all and I pulled in the clutch and had the kickstand up and try to start it no crack
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I've also replaced the neutral switch and also replace the battery and also starter relay
Motorcycle Mechanic: Louie, Technician replied 6 months ago

Appreciate the additional information; very significant.

Still, let's try check and review the basics. Proposed preliminary tries (if have not been done):

  • • check the starter circuit relay inside the relay box;
  • • as well as the neutral diode;
  • • ensure starter relay's black/yellow wire is tied to a good ground;
  • • do the same to the common tie point/joint connector of these black/yellow wires;
  • • test for +12V on the:
  • - red wire to the START button switch;
  • - black/red from the START button switch when attempting to start;
  • - yellow/red wire from the relay box to the starter relay also when attempting to start.

And for test purposes, momentarily hardwire this yellow/red wire to the battery's + terminal.
