I have mine tucked up on one of my motors. On another one, I machined a brass plug for the drum area and did not put the cover on there.

Mine are also tucked away, but I recently purchased a signal indicator plug-in for the Honda Nice bike and was thinking of using the gear indicator lights. I have my neutral indicator hooked up along with my hi-beam indicator light.

Same here, just tucked away



would be sweet to have a gear indicator light ,koso U.S make a nice version



'tis bit pointless with only 4 gears, think of the cool factor, especially with a shift warning light :cool:

Also the KOSO tachs offer a progammable shift light. Mine has one and its a 2 stage unit, meaning 1000 rpms below redline a yellow warning light comes on and at redline the red one lights up next to it. It looks pretty sweet at night.



I do have a question about neutral lights though. Is there a wire like this on a Lifan 125 as well?

If it is that wire, will the wiring be as simple as running that to a positive on an LED light and then grounding it? Or does it need to run through a regulator to avoid blowing the bulb?

ok, I will lick my fingers and hope for the best...



Actually thats a good idea, I will measure the voltage with a meter before proceeding.



Thanks for the props on the Z. If you check out my other thread you will see there are quite a few new parts that are waiting to be put on the bike right now. Its over 105 daily though so maybe when the weather improves I will get back out there.

The neutral wire (or gear indicator) is a switching ground wire.



So (+) wire to light/led and the other wire connects to your neutral indicator wire (ground).
