Neutral light reversed?


Been Around the Block
Put some new indicator lights on the bike (74 cb550) and suddenly my neutral light comes on in every gear Except neutral. What did I do wrong?

Neutral lights and oil pressure lights are typically fed a constant 12V+ and the ground loop is switched (at least on most bike’s I’ve ever worked on). Sounds like you swapped a couple wires somewhere so that it is constantly grounded and the positive is switching on except when in neutral.
