Title: BS 200 SS Neutral Switch/Light
Post by: rwgibbon on November 13, 2020, 04:15:37 PM
After many attempts I finally have the neutral light working properly on my BS 200 SS.
I had to split the motor and replace the 4/5 gear shifter shaft. I add a new contact plate
and got it in the proper location. The 4/5 gear shifter is making contact
and the neutral light is working correctly in both 4th and 5th gear.

What ever engineer came up with this design must have been drinking at the time.

Now I can put all the parts back on the bike and start it back up again before having it painted.
It is currently original gold and I plan on having it painted white. It will be the only white
Bridgestone I have.

I will attach a few pictures as the project progresses.

Sounds like good progress Randy, nice to see someone working on their bike. Seems like not much happening lately with the mess and all.
Good Luck,
Later Mike

Thanks Mike.

I have been dealing with a medical issue and now can get
back to being in the shop.

Regards
