On my 02 Vulcan 800 it is hard to find neutral and keep the green light on.
Is there any adjustment I can do so I can pop it either up or down to get it to light?...Thanks

Does this happen while you're stopped?
Sometimes it keeps getting bypassed if the bike is still moving like when coming to a red light.

Mine was easier to find neutral, and shift overall, after switching oil to Rotella T6. Even better after a few changes now. Not sure how bad your issue is but that helped quite a bit in my case. Still, it is hard to stop in neutral on the way down from 2nd, even with a light touch I can feel it has grabbed first, and notice the light is not on. I usually stay at a stoplight in first anyway until i realize the car behind me is also going to stop. First to neutral when stopped should be very easy due to the "positive neutral finder". If that is not, I would figure there is a mechanical issue with that area of the tranny.

I just bought a used 2005 800 and it's skipping past neutral from 1st into 2nd and the I down to 1st again and try to find neutral but it skips past neutral. I wonder its the oil he was using?
