Have you tried starting it with the charger on the battery? I may be going down the wrong path here, but it’s worth giving it a shot.

Ok as I said,I may be way off track here. Hope you find the issue so I can learn as well.

The revers diode assy on the frame behind the right saddle bag has a tendency to come unplugged, I think you can reach it with the seat removed.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

A HUGE thank you to DBohrer for helping me diagnose my issue. It was the reverse lever switch. He helped me check several things which lead to the switch. I got to the old one and started playing with the plunger. Sometimes the light would come on, sometimes it would not. Ordered a new one and ready to install. Thank you all, for the help and suggestions. Gave me several things to try and to rule out things.
And again, Thank you
DBohrer.

O.M.G! Thanks to this forum I have followed what has been said about the "no neutral light and won't start" tips and after a couple of days faffing around it's back to normal!! Reverse lever removed and a good spraying behind with WD-40 and it's good to go. Thanks to everyone who has had an input into this problem I am so,so grateful. πŸ‘

It is kind of a wonder that the neutral light works as well as it does. The wiring for the light goes through 9 connectors before it is able to light. Plus a couple of switches have to work right.
