    neutral-light keeps burning

    Hi Y'all

    My husband ownes a Boulevard C90 (if i'm not mistaken, it's called a "intruder VL-1500-LC" in Europe )
    Anyways, it's from 1996/1997 or something like that and his neutral-light burns constantly, nomatter what gear he's in.

    Anyone got an idea how the F* that's possible and how to get it working the way it should?

    Thnx in advance!

    You need to trace out the wires and inspect them.
    If you are lucky, you will find a spot where the insulation is melted and the two wires are shorting together. (easy fix).
    If you are NOT lucky, it's the switch itself.....and the fix will be slightly more complicated.
    Maybe the worst case is that there is a defect inside the case where the light lives (usually the speedo).
    Armed with a multi-meter, it should be fairly easy to track down the source of the problem.......once you find a connector for the two wires.

    P.S. Since the shop already knows where the wires and the switch is located and how to test it.......having them fix the problem should be fairly quick and inexpensive........I think.

    That is kind of a dangerous situation as it probably allows you to start the bike while it is IN GEAR.
