Pissed DR650 owners Beware! Neutral Sending Unit screw up!

As I was driving down the road with my missus suddenly the bike sounded like a washing machine filled up with screws and gravel brake/stop/swear...

Got home (thats another story) assessed the damage and it`s hmmm...

Started tinkering what caused the carnage and realized MY NEUTRAL LIGHT was not working properly for a couple of days. A little more reading and sometimes on older DR650-s the screw of the neutral sending unit can let go and could cause massive damage!

So beware! If your light goes out or flicker don`t assume it`s just some electrical gremlin (like I did) strip the RHS clutch cover and check the bolts holding the NSU in place or rip the thing out all together.

My question is do you reckon if its a complete strip and rebuild if your clutch inner hub plate assembly is disintegrated to million little pieces?

Everything else looks intact no pitting scoring but metallic particles could be anywhere in the insides.
