Changing the Neutral Security Swap on a Bike (Kawasaki ZZR600)

A shorter tutorial video clip I resolved to make for the reason that I was bored. This job was extremely quick and I could have built the video clip a ton shorter if I wanted to.

And of course, I know that I stored declaring “bolt” about the change even though it isn’t really definitely. 🙂 Haha

    Did you have to train all the oil? Or only a small amount of oil will come out? Need to place a bucket or something?

    Great and helpful comments, thank you, my problem was the sidestand kill switch, completely crudded over on my ZZR1100 D4 50000 miles,turned over but would not start, cleaned the outside  and shot some WD40 up the switch-starts immediately-what a relief !.

    Thx man and me too
    I let it worry me a little to much sometimes when somethin goes wrong with it
    I think a good plug change and carb clean won't hurt but as of now she don't run bad

    i got the same bike, mine died on me yesterday left me stranded on the side of the road.  Sounded like it was running out of gas slowly bogging down until it just shut off.  Full tank of gas and every 5 minutes you could fully choke it and it would sputter and try firin up for a sec but then die.  Got it home took the tank off and discovered the fuel pump was not engaging what so ever.  Tested with meter and found that it is getting voltage at the connector but not enough apparently so im assuming its the relay but i just ordered a new relay, pump, filter and air filter because the one that was on there looks like it was the original lol unimaginably dirty
    but wish me luck i hope i get her back on the road
    carbureted bikes are a bitch and i am dam sure getting fuel injected for my next one

    I don't know where the other end goes…probably some wiring harness that hooks up to the ECU or something. Look for a wiring diagram.

    No, I changed it due to the metal switch wearing down and not working like it should.

    No problem. Keep in mind some oil may drain from that hole if you have your bike on the side stand. You had an 09 r6? I would mainly miss the fuel injection, but the ZZR is much more comfortable.

    Part is actually on the side. 14 millimiter wrench required. If on kickstand get part ready as oil will gush out. Use washer from old part. I ordered the part and replaced it successfully. Other than getting oil on my hands and a spot on the garage floor the project was successful thanks to this video. Thank you!!!

    If your neutral light is not coming on, this is most likely the reason why. If you're in neutral and try starting the bike without the clutch pulled in, and the kick stand down…the bike will not start if it doesn't think it's in neutral. If you pull in the clutch while in neutral, it should still be able to start even if it doesn't know it's in neutral. As soon as you let go of the clutch and the stand is down though, it should kill the bike. If so, time for a new neutral safety switch.

    @wilberto052290 I apologize, I don't know how to replace the clutch. I think clutches are somewhat expensive, but all very similar to change out. I don't believe they are so hard though, so most tutorials should point you in the right direction. sportbikes(dot)net has some good information on the ZZR600 and have a few people who are really knowledgeable on the bike. Best of luck to you!

    Shouldn't you have also thrown the kickstand down to make sure it didn't die?

    @npmexikan Have you replaced it yet? The part is about $15 from your dealer…simple fix, and common problem. Hope it works out for you.
