    PDI on bike not correct? Check the clutch adjustment COLD and like The Boss said change the lube:s

    +2 on the Spectro oil. Pricey but worth it.

    Geez,
    I bet you have been using it to lube those Potatoes before they go into the swamp EH..
    ******************************
    The first break-in miles until 1000 will afford a tighter area in the shifter to tyranny and the Neutral position hard to find..

    I would be looking at changing ALL the fluid at the 1000 mile time (my self) and get the GOOD stuff in,,,,,, Like suggested,,,, Mine is Redline Products...

    I also would adjust the clutch, using the 1/2 turn out on clutch pack (cold) and adjust the cable to 1/16 - 1/8 max at handlebar ferrel..

    Should find neutral easier after clutch is adjusted PROPERLY at that time and with increased miles on the bike.

    BOTH spectro and REDLINE are fine products :tounge Just My Oil Is Better Than Their Oil..

    When I installed the SE 6-spd on my '03 UC, I had a flacky neutral light that would be blinky or not even on when the tranny warmed up. The neutral switch on that tranny (like the OEM 5-spd) is on the top cover. I just had to cut down an open end wrench so I could tighten up the switch a wee bit. Solved that problem!!

    TQ

    I was too embarrased and thought it was just me. I am having the same issue with my 2011 Road King

    After changing trans oil to a good quality oil you will not believe the ease of over all shifting especially finding neutral.
