So while riding my neutral light flickers, and when I'm stopped if I role the wheel into a certain spot it will stay on... I recently installed TST flush Lights with the flasher relay, the MOTODYNAMIC Sequential Brake Lights with Intergrated Turn Signals, and the vagabond fender eliminator but didn't plug in the license plate light. what could the problem be here???? I'm about to grab the plate light and see if that helps my issues but i highly doubt it.

just so you all know i tried it and nothing changed. even went back to all stock and it still has the issue. I'm very confused maybe its the neutral switch itself? Where would it be located so i can check it.. For anyone who helps thanks in advance

Ok I figured out my problem....... all my fault.... seems when I was doing inexpensive chain maintenance I created a possibly expensive electrical problem. The front sprocket cover is a little bit tricky with getting the wires back in place it seems the two lower ones slipped inside the cover where the sprocket and chain are..... this ate at the wires and was cause of my short with the flickering neutral light, the chain itself was touching the wire.......FAIL!

Oh man. At least you discovered it. How long did it take for you to work backwards and figure it out? Hopefully, it wasn't too long becuaause that can be infuriating. Alls well that ends well. Anyway, there are wires tightly packed by the cover? That is pretty crazy it was hitting your chain. Hopefully it won't be a serious or complicated fix. Keep us posted.

it literally took me the the time i posted the question to the answer lol I think a near three hours with taking breaks and taking all the mods off and putting it all back to factory just to make sure I didn't mess up anywhere during installation... then i was thinking why would there only be a problem when the tire is certain spots whether moving the bike backward or forward, which led me to check the front cover for a short and sure enough there it was all mangled. And yes there are three sets of wires that are supposed to run on the outside... seems mine slipped in while i was putting everything back... seems it only has chewed into one wire so I bet I could just get away with electrical tape... but i hate the idea of that. I'm going it take it to the dealer see how much they charge......... its going to hurt. I moved everything away from the chain. got it into its correct position and it no longer has the short but I have to fix it permanently . So note to EVERYONE Watch those tricky wires!

went to the dealer told me he'd charge 80$ just to look at the bike... described everything he said since i didnt cut all the way through i just needed to put electrical tape on it. Wooo he said even if i did cut through that I should just fix it myself with shrink tube, cause they would charge a lot to do the same thing. I GOT LUCKY. Good thing I noticed it very quickly
