    Yes and no to the unpluging till the light went out. I omhed the main switch out to make sure it did not have a short it was good. so even with the light unpluged it was still drawing amps. so I started unpluging every thing one at a time until it quite drawing amps. the old bike bike had so much grease behind the cove that could not tell what was what. I have come to the conclusion that the nuetral switch has short in it when it is the neutral position. But after reading that out loud that does not makes sense. why isn't my main switch cutting the power off? What else could keep the the circ

    Ok, I know it is somewhere between my Nuetral switch and alternator. I have isolated down to that portion of the sytem. But I made a mistake I cut the end off my alternator lead now I don't know which white wire goes to which white wire. I knew better. I was taking a short cut an secued up.

    Both switches turned off for the lights to stay on. It will crank with main switch off. The kill switch will kill the engine like it is designed to do. Thanks for any help you can give me.

    Thanks, I may take it to a Pro and let them tweek it and adjust th valves for me. The bike has only 79000 miles on it. If I can get another 10 to 20 miles to the gallon it will be worth it.

    My nuetral and oil light stays on with the switch off. Plus the starter will not turn over. I can only crank it with the kick strart. It will even start with the switch off tha t way. Do I have a short and where would I look first.
