OHH $hit Oil Chage...

I had an OHH $hit Oil Change. I just found a present in my oil. I changed the oil on my DR650 and found a spring and a screw in the oil. I think its from the neutral light switch. I may be spliting the cases if I can't find everything. Pics in about 15 min. My camera needs charging.

The spring and "peg" both go in the shift drum, then the sensor hanging there bolts to the engine case covering the drum. Basically the spring holds pressure against the peg which makes contact to the sensor. When you shift gears or neutral, the shift drum turns and moves the peg to different positions on the sensor, thats what turns on your neutral light and normally tells the ECM which gear you are in for fuel mapping..... But on a DR there are probably only a couple positions on the sensor, hence only have one peg/spring, usually there are two on inline 4s.

Looks like the screws backed out of the sensor, it fell off and the peg and spring shot into the crank case and ended up in the sump.....He is very lucky he found everything...

Yesterday Patrick said - "Bikes vibrate everything loose, check your bolts" Could anything have been done to prevent something like this from happening? And what if this happened while riding? Or did it happen while riding? My bike has been trying to decide whether or not the Neutral light should be in the always on indicator. Could this be the problem?

. . .I swear, it's like magic when you guys can figure this stuff out. If I ever changed the oil and saw that I'd think "huh, extra stuff for the catch-all nut/bolt can." Zxalan--if the apocolypse ever comes and the world goes all Mad Max, I wanna be in your caravan.

Haha. Just about to explain this. I only have one position. Its for the neutral light to come on. Unlike modern sport bikes that have multiple contacts. Mine has a carb. Its all back together now and locktite has become my friend. I will re check the screws in about 5K miles now. Good news is my neutral light works and I have an engine that still runs. Glad I haven't been popping to many woolies.

You can work in my refinery but only if you know how to make a crossbow wrist pistol or chainmail out of steel wire.
