    It's in the oil pan. THe neutral light staying on might mean the swith is stuck, or it mibght mean that the switch has bee bypassed.
    Look for a sky-blue wire running along the lower left frame tube (round about the shift lever region). That is the neutral switch lead (the switch grounds to the case when in neural). That wire runs to the switch. If you have a Maxim you'll be able to see it. If you own a Seca the exhaust collector pretty well blocks the view (and access).

    Nice picture. Clean engine. Take note that if the engine is still in the bike and/or the exhaust system is still on, it will be hard to see and even harder to get to........

    Does anyone know:

    IF the neutral switch is bad....will this prevent the bike from sparking at all? The wire going to the starter circuit cut off relay on my bike is a dark royal blue, not a sky blue like it's supposed to be...WTF.

    Anyway...would a bad switch prevent spark?

    Thanks

    Here's 2 pics I took when I finally found the neutral switch on my 650 Seca.

    One side view, one from underneath.
