False Wilbur is an annoying state when you drop a gear and instead of slotting the right gear you hit a neutral. This is what exactly you feel when you encounter a False Neutral but in reality, this condition is not that simple. Getting into a neutral state while changing gear of your motorbike is not always "False Neutral", for example; having a gear pattern 1-N-2-3-4-5, while upshifting from 1st gear to 2nd gear if you experience the same condition and you hit the neutral, it is not False Neutral instead you've actually hit the "True Neutral". Let's take it to another level and try to understand what's actually going on in the transmission.
When we say we've experienced a False Neutral, we mean that a Neutral like condition is being experienced while shifting between two gears other than 1st and 2nd in case of above-mentioned gear pattern (1-N-2-3-4-5). In this kind of situation, the engine revs freely and no gear is been engaged so far, in fact, it's a kind of limbo between two gears and no gear has been cogged whatsoever.
Apparently, the False Neutral state does not pose any threat to the engine or the transmission but it is indeed a very frustrating and annoying condition. The False Neutral can be seen on both comparatively older and brand new motorcycles. As far experiencing False Neutral in old bikes is concerned, normally worn out gears and bent shift forks come out as the culprit. But the same can be seen on brand new motorcycles as well and hence this should not be misunderstood as any mechanical fault.
In comparatively newer machines and sometimes even on the brand new motorbikes, the False Neutral can also be seen. Generally, it is witnessed when you try to shift the gear while accelerating the bike you tend to hit the false neutral more, this could happen between any gears and while both up and downshifting. Encountering False Neutral in newer machines is generally caused due to slotting gears in hurry. It is seen that when correct pressure is not given on the gear shifter and one just tap the shifter while pulling the clutch, False Neutral hits.
To avoid false neutral one should preload the shifter before actually pulling the clutch and dropping the gear. This method is found effective by many riders across the world and is considered a remedy for the False Neutral state especially on new bikes. The preloading of the gear shifter helps the shift fork to engage the right gear and one can actually feel the meshing of gears happening.
While False Neutral does not seem fatal for the engine or transmission but the overall experience could lead to a disaster depending on the timing of the event. As the false neutral generally occurs at high acceleration, it is likely that one is doing the maneuver while overtaking any vehicle and hitting a false neutral at a crucial condition like this could be fatal.
Another thing that needs to be kept in mind is once you hit the false neutral, try to get it back in the slot by upshifting (e.g.; from 3rd to 4th or from 2nd to 3rd) and always avoid doing downshifting (e.g.; from 4th- 3rd or from 3rd to 2nd). This is very important and can be understood by assuming you are experiencing the false neutral while making a cornering maneuver. If you downshift to get out of the false neutral, there are full chances of the rear wheel lock and you will never want this to happen while you are at the corner of the road.

Hi, Anonymous before testing any electrical component in the Turn Signal Light Circuit it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test because your battery may have 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amps causing the battery to be faulty and must be replaced, "AGM" batteries fall into this category more so than lead-acid types, also before diagnosing any turn signal/running light/parking light issue make sure the bulb is good and the light fuse has continuity with a test light. If you have replaced your OEM lights with one or all LED lights you are going to need a load equalizer.
If no turn signals are working the cause could be a faulty turn signal module/flasher or the connector going to it, look for, corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets. Contact spray cleaner is great for removing corrosion.
If your turn signal comes on but takes several seconds before it starts flashing you may have dirty contacts in the turn signal switch/button, the switch needs to be opened up and cleaned also the flasher may be starting to fail. It should be noted that cold weather will only exacerbate the situation especially when temperatures drop down below freezing and the location of the component, turn signal switches on the handlebar are at the mercy of the oncoming freezing 70 mph wind and makes it hard for the contacts to do their job covered in frozen grease/grime
If all four turn signals flash at the same time like hazard lights even though you only pressed one turn signal button then you have a LED light in the circuit and need a load equalizer that can be purchased from any motorcycle parts supplier.
If your speedometer does not function properly it will have to be fixed first because your turn signal module gets the data from the speedometer for normal turn signal function.
If your front turn signals don't work use a test light to check for power and ground at the bulb socket, then start backtracking the wiring through every wire connector to the turn signal switch/button and check for continuity, go all the way back to the fuse if necessary to find the cause of the malfunction.
If your rear turn signals don't work check your rear fender wiring harness connector first, for corroded, broken, loose pins/sockets, power, and a good ground, the harness connector is usually located under the seat on the front of the rear fender then keep tracing the wiring look for obvious harness damage caused by the rear tire.
If you still can't find the malfunction backtrack from the rear fender wiring harness connector.
If one side does not work you could have a faulty turn signal switch or module check for continuity.

Hi Anonymous, when checking for spark the CKP needs to measure the compression bump in order to send the correct signal to the ICM/ECM so always check for spark with either a third plug grounded or lift the end of the plug boot 1/2 " off one of spark plugs that are in the head. and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty
2. Fuel supply valve turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded with gasoline as a result of over use of enrichner.
5. Fuel valve or filter clogged.
6. Vacuum hose to automatic fuel supply valve disconnected, leaking, or pinched.
7. Discharged battery, loose or broken battery connections.
8. Loose wire connection at coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and module.
9. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting, spark plug cable connections loose,
or cables connected to wrong cylinders.
10. Ignition timing incorrect due to faulty ignition coil, ignition module, or sensors " Manifold Absolute Pressure" "Camshaft Position Sensor" "Crank Position Sensor" "Brake Apply Sensor
11. Engine lubricant to heavy ( winter operation )
12. Sticking or damaged valves or push rod wrong length.
13. Primary cam sproket spline sheared or missing spacer.
14. Security alarm system not disarming.
For a primary suspect please visit the website below: Good luck
