Hi all, first time poster although i have been lurking here for the last year or so and i have to say this place really is a gem on the internet, thank you for all of the information. I bought a 2001 drz400(s/y not too sure which) in January and only passed my test yesterday , so i got to have my first ride, being fully aware its a 15 year old bike i was expecting a fault or two but not this. I rode for around 20mins then pulled over and had trouble getting neutral so i stupidly used the cut off switch to turn off the bike , when i went to start it 10 mins later, there was no ignition at all, i eventually noticed that if i pressed in the cut off switch i would get a neutral light and if i put the bike in gear the dash would light up, neither will allow the bike to be started. I also found that i had to move the bike a little to change gears when stationary, with or without clutch. i really am at a loss, other than i suspect it has a short somewhere, ill be having a try to diagnose the fault tomorrow. Cheers John.
