    I just have around 100 miles or so an my V7III, but I'm having difficulty finding neutral, then sometimes the light will indicate neutral and then the next instant it decides it's in gear (it is). IS this a problem that will improve after more gear changes have been made? (More Miles)

    Thankis!

    Check clutch adjustment. Also it is easier to select neutral if rolling.

    the III only calls for 2MM of free play. not enough in my opinion. some people say there's works OK with the 2MM but mine still doesn't at 13000 miles. neutral is a pain in the ass to find!

    Interesting, I can only find neutral on purpose when at a stop. Cannot find it on purpose while rolling.

    I just turned over 5000 miles on my V7III Racer and I find neutral is much easier to find than it was when it was new. I can get neutral pretty reliably now while rolling to a stop. Check the lever free play as described above. Now go down to the shift pedal and make sure all the linkage balls are tight. At least one of mine was loose and kept loosening after tightening so I Loctite'd it. That greatly improved shift feel.

    I had the same exact issue. After a quick clutch cable adjustment, I can find neutral every time!
