neutral safety switch part # ??

My neutral light works intermttently,and usually only when the the clutch
lever is completely released..It does not just come on when I put it in neutral...
I looked at the exploded parts view on the Honda parts website,but dont see the part number,or switch in the drawing...
Its the little switch on the handlebars,actuated by the clutch lever..

Anyone know what it is...?

Neutral switch is grounded by the gearshift drum. It wears off the tip, makes it intermittent before it goes completely out. It has a thick sealing washer you can file down and keep on riding or you can get a new neutral switch. Shown on "crankcase" fiche. Yes---oil will run out when you change it...
When you let the clutch out the gears are moving so the movement is grounding it. The clutch switch has nothing to do with the neutral light.

The clutch switch with a ground from a kick stand up switch allows you to start the VTX in gear or in neutral when the neutral switch is defective.

I would say it could be a loose connector for the wires going to the speedometer, or the neutral switch or wiring for it, but I don't think it has anything to do with your clutch switch as that switch does not control the neutral light.

swap out the switch behind the left engine cover. There is a wire connected to the top. Pull the wire off then back out the switch.
I had the exact same problem with my bike.

I pulled the switch off the left clutch lever again,blew it out with some contact cleaner,
then hit the little square plunger with some light silicone lube...

Working much better now...

Thanks for all the info ....

Your wiring is really screwed up if your clutch switch controls your neutral light .
