OK here is the deal:

I have a ZX10r, 2004 which has a Factory Pro Evo Shift Star Kit on it. Last week installed a gear indicator (plug & play version) and speedo-healer (plug & play version). Noticed after installing all the electronics I can’t make the bike to stay on neutral. I have to force the shifter to stay on neutral with the clutch engaged. As soon as I let go the clutch, bike will die and my gear indicator jumps from (neutral) 0 to 1st or 2nd gear. Tried to disconnect the gear indicator and still can’t get the bike to stay in neutral.

I know is not the Shit kit since it was working fine before with no problem at all. I spoke with couple of guys about this issue. One told me; my clutch plates were dry which prevented the foot ever to stay in neutral causing the bike to shut off. Other one told me; was my neutral switch sensor is gone bad and needs to be replaced.

I am tempted to rip everything apart by removing both the gear indicator and speedo-healer to see what happens. If they were not the problem then how do I check to make sure neutral switch sensor is working OK? Second, how I check to make sure the clutch plates are not dry?

This is driving me crazy and I can’t figure it out. Want to go on a ride but can’t get this damn thing to work. :angryfire :BangHead: :BangHead:

Note I don’t get any smoke coming out of the exhaust or nasty metal rubbing sound to indicate somehow the plates are dry.

Sure appreciate any help you guys can provide. Thanks fellows!:ayyy::ayyy:

Well I have much experience with gear indicators and speedohealers and both of them do not affect a 1st Gen from staying in Neutral. As far as dry plates I would presume that still will not have an effect on the bike staying in neutral because you can have as much load as you want in Neutral.

So, at this point and just a guess from what I read it's your Shift Kit which I know nothing about.

PS......what gear indicator did you install?

That is pretty cool. Who is the manufacturer? Did you build it yourself or selling a mod acuman type?

I built and sold some to members on this site and use to own the Acumen until I built my own. :thumbsup:

Might be interested if you have one for Yamaha R1, 2006. Let me know what LED color display does yours come with.
