    Hi,

    I have bought a Vmax 1700 for 2 days and I see that the neutral light under the speedometer doesn’t come on. Everything works well, the N appears in the indicator gear (digital dash). Anyone know what can be? Is it a possible to replace that bulb led? How to do it?
    Thanks in advance!!!

    I can't recall what the resolution to this problem was but would actually like to know as well since I have a 2010 that came in with this same issue.

    Gear indicator switch? I remember a few people having problems with it and just cleaned it up a bit and were OK then.

    I've never had one out so I don't know but, I'd suggest getting the bike off the side stand and standing it up straight.

    Either drain the oil or let it flow while you're cleaning it and then refill whatever amount is lost (using the sight glass)
