E-starts only in neutral???

I can only electric start my 450 in neutral, I always could start it in every gear at first but I can't any more, I was wondering if it might be that I removed wrong wire when I was removing the gray wire :) It happened about a month after I got the bike so I don't remember if it happened right after but it never bothered me, but now I going to start racing so I wan't to get this fixed.


Sounds like you disconnected the wire from the clutch lever switch. The neutral switch and the clutch switch are in parallel through a couple of diodes. One or the other of them has to be made to activate the starter. Look at the schematic in the manual.

I have done the neutral switch disconnect with the sky blue wire removal under the tank. My bike engages the starter fine in gear with or without the clutch engaged. :)
