Bypass neutral switch. Any negatives?

I want to bypass my neutral switch on my 2000 CBR929RR because I don't like having to put it into neutral if I happen to stall at a stop. Are there any negatives to this? Will the neutral light still work if I bypass it? I am assuming that it will not.


Thank you

Re: Bypass neutral switch. Any negatives?

I'm quite certain I've bypassed the NSS (and sidestand safety "switch" and BAS) on my RR2... but I may be mistaken. If you're concerned about the light, then it may be better to bypass the clutch safety instead.

And yes, my green neutral lamp illuminates when not in gear

Yeah for some reason my bike wont start in gear with the clutch lever pulled in. So if i stall, it is a pain to put in neutral and than start. So that is why i was thinking of doing that. I have already bypassed my kickstand switch.

But you said that it has a clutch safety switch also, which i did not know. So maybe i am have a problem with that, which is why it wont start in gear with clutch pulled in. I will check that out.

Thanks for the reply

The side stand switch will cut ignition if the stand is left down and put in gear, even with clutch pulled in.

It may be interfering with your clutch switch. Try and put the sodestamd back in the loop and see if your clutch switch works again.

You should always be able to start your bike in gear with the clutch pulled in, as long as the side stand is up.

Why did you decide to bypass the sidestand switch anyway?

Re: Bypass neutral switch. Any negatives?

mine started tonight in 1st with the clutch pulled in - never had a bike that wouldn't. If the clutch switch wires are not connected or broken, or the clutch switch is faulty then that would prevent it. I've seen it where some one plunged the wires on to the clutch lever BUT didn't get the connection on to the blade of the switch so it looked ok but there was no electrical connection! LOL

UPDATE

Know its been a while, but wanted to update all the people who were such great help. Been really busy so just started to go over bike again.

When i checked the clutch switch one of the connectors was broken off from the wire, so it was basically not connected. not sure if switch is bad but pretty sure it just needs to have a new connector put on and reconnected. Which i will do sometime today hopefully. Thanks again guys for the help.
