    Hi
    Whilst carbs are out for cleaning thought I would try to sort some of the warning lights not working.
    At purchase neutral working and high beam both ok. No oil pressure or water temp. Appreciate water will not light up on ignition. So unplugged and cleaned oil pressure switch . Removed battery to prove circuit. Replaced battery and oil p light working. But neutral light suddenly stopped working.. any ideas why.

    As first posts go, it's a bit on the pithy side. But it's going to be your wiring loom. :)

    Hi Robe and welcome to the forum :cool:. A description of your ride or better still some pix of the ride and warning lights will help the team to assist if possible

    Well if it was working before you may have disturbed a connector. I take it you haven't accidentally put the bike in gear while working.
    Duff bulb?
    Bad earth?
    Neutral lights do play up regularly, has it always worked? There is a fix if not , using a thicker washer at bottom end, try wiggling the cable there a bit.

    I didnt have issues with mine but I think the switch is on bottom of left hand crankcase and gearbox. Try looking by footrest and gear change but below. I believe you may get away with cleaning the washer or bending it for better contact.....if of course it is that. Sorry but I dont have a T3 engine bike any more so can't look for you. If you go on triumphrat site and search there is info there.
