Neutral Light stays on

Hi all, I realize this may not be the right forum but I thought I would get some more responses here.

So I currently have a 1990 Honda CBR400RR (L) which has an issue with the neutral light. Basically the neutral light will stay on, even when in gear. The only difference being in gear does is very slightly dim the neutral bulb. I changed the neutral switch and the problem still persists.

After a while I realized that if I put down the side-stand, the neutral light will work as it should; on in neutral and off in gear. However, for some reason when doing this if the bike is in gear and the kickstand is down, the kickstand light will turn off if in gear and turn on only in neutral. I unplugged the side-stand cable and again the neutral light works as it should but obviously the side-stand light will not work.

Could this be an issue with the sidestand switch or is it a pinched wire grounding somewhere?

Your assistance would be greatly appreciated
