    Folks,
    DO NOT TAKE ANY NOTICE OF WHAT HONDA AND THEIR MANTENANCE MANUAL STATES WRT REMOVAL OF ENGINE.
    I changed mine about 3 weeks ago now - pain in the arse but can be done  - and yes it was knackered and is apparently fairly common on a lot of Honda's according to my local bike garage.

    Any way you can get at it once battery, battery box, right hand: silencer, foot peg carrier plate, rear brake pedal & master cylinder (not disconnected hydraulically) and the right side swing arm pivot cover plate has been removed.

    PM me if you want to talk it through.

    Thanks Chippy that's a great help. Had a quick look at lunch but was trying from the air filter side and couldn't even get close. I'm an electronics engineer so am happy that the resistance check points to the switch definitely being faulty.

    All well & good - and thanks for the link- but I don't want hassle of re-sizing pics - they upload to ebay etc no problem - just this forum has rediculus file size limits

    sorry  :451:

    HI Everyone, Does Anyone know the procedue or how to gain access to the neutral switch on a 2011 FAB mk2 sc64 ABS?, what parts to remove? i seemed to only find people who did it on mk1, not sure if its same on a mk2?  all the symptoms and diagnosis with multimeter point to neutral switch. Id like to fix problem and i have small hands so hopefully i can replace it without removing engine,Any Help Would Be Greatly Appreciated, Thanks.

    Never heard of a confirmed neutral switch failure, they are a simple, robust mechanical switch, are you sure it has failed?
    What I have experienced is, and the things you should be checking are:
    The neutral switch light green cable continuity to ground
    The gear shift arm and gear shift spindle are correctly aligned
    The gear shift linkage between the gear shift arm and gear shift pedal is in good condition and packed with grease at the pivot points

    In the unlikely event that you need to remove the neutral switch the procedure is the same. To be sure, to be sure RTFM for both the SC58 and SC64 but note as detailed above there is no need to remove the engine if you don't want to.

    Thanks very much ART for your advise, Iíll report back after I get chance to investigate further, ainít to annoyed about it yet as bike cranks and starts with side stand up and in neutral.
