G'day,

A mate of mine with the above is having problems. Bike wont start an reads 'error' on the dash when cranked. The neutral light doesn't come on. Neutral light had been intermittant and took 5-10seconds to show after switching ignition on. Since the neutral light's gone out no start. I've pulled the neutral switch out but not sure how to test it. Looks ok but the plug is too small to get probes in. Bike runs a Microtec from Chris at XBikes. Had been running fine but this occurred a couple of weeks after fitting Microtec. When when he tried to start it he had backfires etc. until the light went out and no go. Ideas?

C heers

Battery is fine fat pat, originally the light came on immediately, then later on it would take about 10 seconds to come on, but now it wont come on at all.

Have not heard back from the service agent silentservice703, he is not known for his promptness and the last time I took it there it was about a month before he worked on it but I will let you know either way.

Ok guys I finally got the bike back and here is what happened. I had a microtec fitted which really improved the fueling but when we mucked around with to fine tune it a bit more we must of made it too rich and the plugs fouled up so the mechanic fitted some new plugs and she is back running again. The neutral light issue is still a bit of a mystery as the way it is now the neutral light does not come on when you turn on the ignition but comes on as soon as the engine starts. The microtec was also removed and the standard ecu was fitted back on by the mechanic as I traded the bike in on a new KTM 1090r, so all I can report is we made it too rich which stuffed up the plugs and that is why it would not start, I had problems with the neutral light with the microtec but with the standard ecu its working although not as its meant to. I should of just been satisfied with the standard microtec settings and left it alone.
