If the switch or the wire were broken, or the bulb were broken, there would be no green light. Okay, a slight possibility of a short circuit - in that case it would be allways on.

Generally the type of switch it is, wears out and eventually goes intermittent open circuit. It's a ball in the end of the change drum contacting a brass pin in plastic. Look at JBX TDM for his gear indicator based on the same switch.

Mine sometimes doesn't come on. This also means I have to start the bike with the clutch pulled in.
