Fuel pump and filter check!
New brake pads on as well.

Bike now starts seemingly fine. Idles funny when warming up little popping here and there til it equalizes out.. Now new problem, neutral light is staying on. Switching through gears and all nothing catches. I'm guessing it's either clutch actuator and handle need proper adjusting (most likely)or maybe the neutral switch underneath itself..
So I've seen a few guides but not really any videos out on how to adjust the clutch cable actuator. Anyone point me the right way or have better insight?

Mind the last one....she IS running and got the clutch actuator to it's sweet spot...not as far in as I thought I felt the first 10 times i adjusted it!

Either way...HOORAH, so happy to have ridden her tonight first time in say 9 months or so since last season at least.

Besides shifting, weird other issue/question is that my bike doesn't like to run/stay running and ESPECIALLY not when I turn throttle IF the switch for the fuel is not to the left. I thought that is reserve? Runs right on res but not ON or whatever it says?> Some kind of wire/switch :banned2: or what?
