wont shift into neutral

We unloaded the wheeler from the truck it went into nuetral fine and put it into gear while we took the gas tank off and fixed it. The electric start is bypassed so we can kick start it. I was wondering if the electric start not working has something to with it not going into neutral? does the key have to be on for the wheeler to go into nuetral? like i said it went into neutral fine a week ago when we took it out of the truck after i bought it and now it seems to not want to go into neutral

Welcome to the forums. I agree with 94300ex. When you say it won't go into neutral, do you mean it won't go into neutral or do you just mean the neutral light doesn't come on?

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

You could try to adjust the clutch free play. If that doesn't help, you have a problem with the shift linkage or the transmission, itself and you will have to tear it down to find the problem.

To adjust the clutch free play, find the adjusting screw on the right side of the engine. Loosen the locknut and slowly turn the adjusting screw counterclockwise until you feel resistance. Now, turn the adjusting screw clockwise 1/4 turn. Lastly, hold the adjusting screw while tightening the lock nut.

I really doubt the clutch free play is the problem, but I would try it anyway, before tearing into the engine.

No, if the battery isn't hooked up the neutral light won't come on, unless the engine is running.
