Neutral sensor repair on a 1500

So about to strip down and take the gear position sensor out. Question is can it be repaired as the only ones on ebay are for the valkyrie or will they do the job.

You don't say what year and it's not listed in your profile, but...

If #8 is what you're looking for, it's still available from Honda.

I believe "basher' has a 1989 Gold Wing. The gear position switch is not available from Honda.

The 1988 -1989 uses a different switch than the other years.....!


Basher, If you can't repair the "gear position switch" or can't locate one, I know of a "last ditch workaround" that can be applied.

According to what was posted in this thread, the later model switch will work in the 88-89 models. You just won't use the wire for 2nd gear as it is not needed in the early year bikes.

Before replacing you might want to check the wire from the switch, may just be a bad wire/connection.
