Trunk latch cable broken(?), Neutral light, Lean angle sensor
Written by part_parrot on 1/3/2011 at 08:50 pm

I haven't yet taken off the left panel (as suggested in other posts) to see if I
can easily get the trunk open, but if that fails, is it true that there's no way
to get into the trunk other than drilling a hole in the trunk panel? I see that
Bike Bandit has the trunk latch cable assembly for about $55, which is worth it
to me. I just don't want to ruin the trunk if I don't have to - that would set
me back over $200. Ouch! Crossing my fingers for an inexpensive, if not easy,

The neutral switch has been not registering neutral when starting. Once the
bike is started and running, it will register neutral- usually. It apparently
gets stuck when the engine is off. I've check the connections and cables and
they all look fine. Has anyone encountered this, and if so, is it worth trying
to replace the switch myself, or just have the dealer do it?

Finally, the lean angle sensor for the turn signals is also not registering a
lean. I'm not finding the cost for a replacement of this, so if anyone has done
this replacement, or has suggestions for a "fix" on this, let me know. This is
one thing I can live without fixing if it turns out to be terribly expensive.

By the way, I ride a '95 and this is the first series of problems I've had with
the bike. (I did lose the automatic petcock about a year ago, but that wasn't a
big deal once the dealer figured out what was going on).

Thanks, guys.
