My problem is the opposite on my 900. The neutral light comes on in every gear while riding.
I have had this same problem on my Daytona Super 3. I resolved it by removing the neutral switch and removing the aluminum crush washer before re-installing the switch with blue removable locktite thread sealant. This enables the spring loaded plunger to better contact the tang on the shifter drum which makes a ground connection to turn on the neutral light. The tang tends to wear where the switch plunger touches it causing this issue.

Kind of a pain when I roll it out of the garage to warm it up in the morning. I can use my hand to put the bike into first gear, back to neutral, maybe two or three times and then the light comes on. Does this sound like a dirty/sticky switch? Is it easy to remove, squirt with contact cleaner and throw back into place?
