RID on '94 RS

>Bob - 

You may indeed already have BOTH the neutral switch and gear position
sensor installed on your tranny, so that EVERTHING you need (except that
RID itself and the fairing panel) is on the bike ready to begin working
with the RID.  My '94 RS is an early Beta bike, as I believe yours is also.
My bike had everything necessary to install the RID except the actual
display unit and the right interior fairing panel with the display cutout. 
The installation is pretty expensive, but I'm glad I installed the RID two
days after we removed the bike from the shipping crate in January, 1994.
