Neutral Safety Switch??

I have a 2000 350FM, when you come to a stop and shift into Neutral, the neutral light does not come on. If you switch into reverse, then back to neutral, 80% of the time the neutral light comes on. The other 20% after switching from reverse, then switch into 1st gear, then into neutral the neutral light comes on. Of course if the light is not on, you can't start it.
Dealer said the neutral safety switch needs to be replaced for about $1,000.
Where is it, can I do it myself, it is hard to do, or can it be by-passed?
Any other ideas?
Thnaks for any help.

Yikes! I would first start by double checking the wires to your indicators. Make sure the connections are good, and while your at it might as well put dielectric grease on the connections. Also check to make sure the wiring itself is ok. I'm not very familiar with the 350's, but IMO can't see why it should cost near that much.

Here is the gear position switch check and replacement procedures.

Most 4-wheeler problems are caused by a loose nut connecting the handlebars and the seat!!

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.
