HELP!!!!!! 🇺🇸🏍
I see I have the cracked and leaking neutral safety switch syndrome. Found the part on the official HD site for $15, went to order one only to find out it's backordered....for 25 weeks lol! Was unable to find a used one for sale online either....Let me expand a little bit now that I'm on a computer and not my phone. As I understand it, the 2017 and later bikes have to be in neutral to start. That's apparently also true for some earlier bikes sold internationally. Mine is a 2016 xg750 sold in the United States and doesn't seem to have a safety switch, just the green neutral light on the dash.
If the failure mode of the switch is permissive and it allows you to start the engine you should be able to ride the bike. I wouldn't start the bike if I weren't in the saddle with the clutch pulled in, just in case it's in gear. I would also be concerned about the bike stranding me somewhere should it become a bit more broken with wear and vibration.
You may be able to find a used part online. Did you happen to get the part number?
