I opened up the assembly again and used more contact cleaner and more wd40, actuated all the switchs many times, everything is working again. YAY! Back on the road again. Thanks for yalls help!
Great job in solving the problem and thanks for sharing the process with all of us so we can learn too.

Techdude2000 Sounds like the reverse shift switch was dirty. It connects the power for the neutral light to the gauge assembly and the reverse relay. Without this power getting through the switch, it won’t crank the engine no matter whether it’s in gear or in neutral. It also would not have connected the power to the reverse control module to activate reverse.

TmDILL I blow air into my switches periodically. Set the compressor at about 15psi and blow the dust out. I've never had a problem.

dsurley I "Try" to remember to work all of the switches and buttons several times at least once a month.

My previous Wing I was the 3rd owner...... never could get some switches to work..... but they weren't ones that I never really needed to use.

guyval I'm glad you got it going, that's great!

If you get in there ( the switch assembly) again, put some dielectric grease in there.
On all the moving parts.
Most Auto parts stores sell it.

A little dab will do. Use a tooth pick or something like that.

Spray the contacts with cleaner and operate them if you can while spraying and flooding it clean.

Good luck

Guy

Keefer269 took the assembly apart, sprayed it down real good with contact cleaner, then douched it with some wd-40, put it back together and after operating all the switches a few dozen times, success! Neutral light comes on, bike starts, go for a ride, cruise control won't set, so I'll have to work on that button some more, but most likely will end up having that assembly replaced. Cheaper to do it now rather than get stranded somewhere. Since they have to take the top half of bike off to change wiring harness, may as well change air filter while they are there.

I suspect one of the switches in that assembly.

Contact cleaner or WD40? lol
WD-40 for sure!

The switch assembly, if I remember correctly, was ~$180.00. I did do the work myself, see the pictures as to how involved it was. (For me anyway.)
