When using different instruments
than the stock instrument cluster it is handy to still be
able to have a neutral light and start the bike in neutral.
In order to do this you need three normally open relays in
series and a 12V diode. The diode keeps the neutral light
from coming on every time you pull in the clutch.
waterproofed PCB relays
do accomplish this. Here's an example. I soldered up three relays, placed
small pieces of Popsicle stick between them, wrapped them in
electrical tape and then filled the tape with epoxy to hold
them together and waterproof them.
To keep the diode leads from
breaking I solder wires to them, place the diode in a short
piece of straw and then fill it with epoxy.
