1994 Fourtrax 200 Neutral Light Problem

Hello Everyone. I really needs some help with my wife's ATV. My nephew was trail riding a couple weeks ago and we came to a stop for a breather and he noticed the quad would not go into neutral, or atleast he thought it didn't, because the Neutral light did not come on. I jumped on it and the light wasn't on but I could tell it was in neutral since I revved it up and it didn't go anywhere. I decided to turn it off and I couldn't get it to turn back on. I have read a lot of the discussions on here about this problem but I can't seem to find one that involves a trx200. I've been looking like crazy and can't find the neutral switch. There is no black box behind the left foot peg, as everyone is saying. Could you guys please help me out with this.

Lex: Welcome to the forum. I'm not familiar with the FX200, but recommend that you download a Service Manual. You can get a manual by going to the link below.

Thanks for the link but I already looked at this and did not find the service manual. It's a 1994 trx200 Fourtrax Type II. I know it's the neutral switch because I figured out the wiring and bypassed it but would like to know where it's located. I can't find any box behind the left foot peg like the 300's. Any help??

Is there any access or does the engine need to be taken apart?

You will not have to take the engine apart the sensor just mounts on the bottom of the engine with one wire going to it

Just checked the bottom of the engine and there is no wire or sensor. The left side by the output sprocket has two wires going in but doesn't seem to have any access.

Can you follow the wire that comes off the neutral light to find the switch

I was able to find the wire in the wire harness on the side of the frame and followed that back to the left side by the outside sprocket. The connector also has the reverse sensor which both the reverse and the neutral sensor wires are in a harness which lead back to the left side by the output sprocket.

ok the switch is behind the cover just above the shift lever, there is a manual neutral indicator with a little red mark that moves as you change gear, there are three wires white , grey , and a green/red wire in a black sheath that go inside the case just above the drive sprocket...these are the wires that go to the switch inside the case, there is also a sheath with two yellow wires for low ac charging that go to regulator, a black/red high a/c wire that goes to cdi for spark circuit and another green for earth, and a blue pulse wire...both sheaths go to plugs by your air box, one pink, the other clear...disconect them. remove the foot rest, remove the gear selector, remove starter cover( two long screws then it just pulls off) undo the 5 nuts holding the cover on and remove it then undo the long 8mm nuts holding the stator/ flywheel cover on(there is a couple under the first cover) and carefully pull off so you dont damage the stator coil on the back of it...switch is on back of cover...piss easy job, may be just a bit of oil that dribles out but everything goes back in same order, when you put starter cover back on put it in gear and gently rock bike back and forward as you push it on, this will cause cogs to rotate a bit and cover pop into place...job done
