Silly question, but I assume you go into neutral by going 1st-> Neutral.
Have you tried doing it down from second? I find mine quite often doesn't like to go in from first, but it's fine if you shift down instead.

Sounds like it's a switch, not the gearbox then.
Can't say I personally know how the bike picks up the Neutral signal, maybe Benji can be more help?

Well if it's only the switch you should be okay, just gonna have to be a little careful checking it really is in neutral.
Have a look at the wires that lead out of the gearbox if you can, just to check for any breaks. It'll save time while we wait for some experience to show up :p

does it roll freely when it's in what YOU THINK is neutral, not the bike? there's a definite difference between switching between 1st and 2nd and into N. get it into what you think is N and wheel it. if it moves, it's your electrics. if not, we'll take it from there.

yeah, that's what the light is for. does the light flick on at all? if you never get a light, it's either the bulb/fuse/wiring. i'll mention that in the rain last year, my N light would come on so i'd spend hours at lights stamping on the pedal. the bike was in gear, the sensor was broken. that sorted itself out, though. up to you if you just want to wait it out, or ask Yamaha to look at it. if it's in warranty, that'll be covered.

Morning, definitely sounds like the neutral switch, it is on the left hand side of the gearbox/engine (looking from when you are sat on it. They are not the best had problems with mine when it was wet. Simple job to fix, just unplug, unscrew old one, screw in new one, plug it back in.

How old's the bike. just speak to the person that sold you the bike and ask them.
