Help! Neutral problem

My bike will go into neutral but the light doesn't come on and the bike doesn't recognize that it's in neutral and wont start. (Unless im holding the clutch)when it clearly is in neutral since when the bike is off i can easily roll it back and forth without holding the clutch. It only happens every once is a while but still a frustrating issue.

Sounds like it could be the neutral switch on the rear of the engine/gearbox might be playing up, or simply the connection is dicky and needs cleaning up.

I'd check the connection first, and if that doesn't fix things then remove the switch and check it for correct operation.

That's a start, hopefully those two things will fix things, if not, a deeper investigation into the wiring and other electrical connections might be required.

Was hoping that was the case but today when I was stoped at a red light I had the bike in neutral then started to to hear rattling in the engine so I pulled the clutch and moved the gear to first. It sounded horrible then the bike just died. Started right back up though. It's like it's falling out of neutral. I don't have much knowledge when it comes to the gearbox and all that.

Sounds a bit like it wasn't positively in neutral and the gears started to try and mesh, causing a horrible noise.

Have you experienced any other problems with gear selection at all ?

I'm thinking that a trip to the dealer to explain the happenings and look see might be in order.
