Stalls at high rpm, neutral light stays on in every gear

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the check engine light on? Does the bike stall at idle or when driving?

No check engine light. Stalls at the end of each gear while driving

I haven't tried anything.

Hello, it sounds like the fault with the neutral switch is causing it to hit the neutral rev limiter while in gear resulting in the loss of power. You'll need to replace the neutral switch and it should resolve the problem.
