For some reason after my Tuono was sitting in the garage for a couple of days the neutral light is failing to come on anymore and the bike just cuts out when you put the stand down. The stand light is working as normal so I know it is not that at fault.
The bike runs as it should on the road with no gear change problems and clutch is fine. Will it be the neutral sensor/switch causing the problem or could it be something more serious.

Assuming it's a gen1 Tuono it could be the neutral switch or possibly the diode pack. The neutral circuit and safety cut outs all run through the diode pack.
 
U could stick a meter on the neutral switch and measure if it is working as you go in and out of neutral.

I can never find neutral like most of us but that's a different issue 
If you ride it like you stole it then you probably did !

Thanks for the reply and help. It is Gen 1 Tuono. I played about with the wire and checked the screw holding it onto the sensor then went for a run and all is well again.

It has an Oberon slave on it. I have no idea if the oil jet mod has been done as I bought it from the dealers. I wish mine would go into neutral with slippers on as when she is cold it is a pain.

I had an aftermarket slave for a while. The lever was easier but finding neutral was a pita. I went back to the OEM unit and now finding neutral is easy, very easy hot or cold. I changed the oil jet years ago and that made a huge difference. I have also installed a banjo bolt bleed nipple at the lever. This makes bleeding a breeze as this is a high point in the hydraulic system. There is one fitted as standard on the brake lever so why they didn't also put one on the clutch lever is beyond me.

Much easier to find N tapping down from from 2nd
Hooking up from 1st looking for N can be a bit hit and miss.

if these bikes were perfect we would probably get bored and sell them, theyre adventure bikes, every ride out is an adventure. Just gotta join the AA. Or have a mate with a van.
