Just above the Tcase fill plug, you'll see a wire that goes into a lil tin cover... Just this side of the plug on top of the trans.

Alan, is just below the rear cylinder exhaust and below the oil tank.

If you need the service manual let me know, it shows how to test it.

OOps!

I took another look... below the "oil temp switch", down in a recess, just barely visable, a three wire connector "blue white black". Looks like the whole Tcase, not just the cover might have to come off.

It's not broken is it??

This is the neutral light switch.
Yamaha calls it the transmission sensor.



The speed sensor is just above the countershaft sprocket on the right side of the bike behind the transfer case. It could be an oil temp switch because it is mounted on a large flat plate. Not sure.


Looks like this with the trans jackshaft in place.

NOTE: Do you realize that this post Ended 09-17-2006
____________________________________

THIS IS THE SPEED SENSOR .... It is perpendicular to the trans output shaft to count teeth and that you can take to the Bank. HAS THREE WIRES


_______________________________________

THIS IS THE NEUTRAL SWITCH AND HAS ONE WIRE AND THAT YOU CAN TAKE TO THE BANK


________________________________________

THIS IS ALSO THE NEUTRAL SWITCH
