    Honda Shadow VT1100 -neutral switch

    Greetings!

    I have a '94 VT1100 Honda Shadow and I absolutely HATE needing to find neutral everytime that I want to start my engine.

    Is there a way that I can bypass or short around the neutral switch?

    And if I do will there be any other NEW problems introduced since there will then be a constant ground at the diode terminals?

    Also, where exactly IS the darn thing? Clymer's says very little about it!

    Would it be easier to short to ground at the clutch diode?

    Thanks!

    Bypassing a safety switch is very easy (just skip the switch and make a good connection between the two wires), and will have no ill effects. I bypassed the nuetral switch on one of my bikes about 45,000 miles ago when the clutch went out, so I could start the bike in gear (shutting it off at stoplights) to get it home. I never did put it back.
