Alright so please bare with me and read yesterday on my 1991 trx300 4x4 it crunk up fine no problems, drove it 30 yards to front yard and shut it off, well i went inside got my hat, came back outside and started it up but then after it crunk the starter stayed engaged so i shut it off and took the key out and the starter was still turning over so i hurried and took the seat and battery cover off and unplugged the starter solinoid and it was still turning over so i just unhooked the solinoid from the battery, well i unhooked the hot wire from the starter and noticed the nuetral light doesnt come on..... what could this be..... btw the guy i bought it from took the two fuses out and just took wire nuts and wired the wires straight together.... but still the starter wont disengage and the nuetral light is not coming on. Ive replaced the bulb with three different new ones and still no light. The starter solinoid is brand new but also the light green and red striped wire was smoking and melted where it plugs in to the starter solinoid when the starter wouldnt quit turning over.... im stumped and need help

Well, you know for certain that you need a wiring harness and a fuse box:
powersportsnation - Search Results for "+15275 +Honda"

Check the starter button switch to be sure it isn't stuck in, and that the handlebars switches assembly is the correct one (hasn't been swapped by a cobbler) for your year/model. Then replace the stuck solenoid with an OEM Honda part only, by plugging into your replacement harness.

Welcome to the forums!

sounds like you got a starter solenoid stuck ----------it won't spin over if the neutral light isn't lit , you can ground the neutral light wire to a ground and it should then spin over , but you now may have damaged the wiring and may have other problems now

I agree that the neutral light issue and the starter running issue are probably two separate things. My suggestion is to focus on one of those issues until it is fixed, then move on to the other.

I also agree that you need to get the wire harness squared away. It is imperative that the original fuse arrangement is restored.
