    Do you guys trust your neutral light?? I remember when taking my motorcycle course that the instructors harped on us to never trust your neutral light, to always roll the bike too make sure it was in neutral. I will admit that I never check, I always trust my light and its never been a problem. Its a 2001 bike, so do older models have a false neutral problem according to the indicator light??

    The neutral light hasn't been false for any of the last 3 bikes that I've owned but the oldest (89 Gixxer 750) sometimes made some funny noises if I wasn't totally in neutral. I would just bang it back into first and try again and it would be fine.

    I don't think you'll have anything to worry about with a newer bike but it's still good practice to let the clutch out slowly, with the front brake on if even if you're in neutral.
    I love my squared off tyres. Torque rules.

    Not sure anymore
    You can feel when the tranny snaps into neutral. You don't really need to trust the light.
