2008 Yamaha Big Bear 400 neutral light not working most of the time.

Recommended Posts

I need to figure out how to clean/fix or replace my neutral switch assembly On my 2008 Yamaha big bear 400 as generally the neutral light doesn’t come on when it is in neutral. To get it to come on I have to wiggle the foot shifter and hold it in just the right spot.
I have googled it and can’t find much on the 400’s. I can’t find a service manual online and the parts manual is super vague.

I think it is in the right side engine cover area, but not certain. 

 Any help would be great. thanks

Scott

Most likely  it  is  the same switch located in the same place as in earlier  models.  There  are  Big Bear 400  manuals  in the  download section ..  Check   them  out  for  the placement  of  your  switch .. It  may  be  something as simple  as a  bad ground .

Thanks for your response davefrombc, but it looks like the older switches were on the outside of the engine/transmission but in 2007 there was changes when it went to irs. So I think it got moved and there is no manual that I can find for 2007 or newer?

Ya I guess I should just break down and buy one. It would save lots of headaches later :)

I need to make room I the garage to have a warmer place to work on it.

      Just got a new to me, 99 Kodiak w/ plow and an extra set of tires for dirt cheap. I'm curious where you guys purchase your parts for your older ATV's? Google is great to find parts, but I'm hoping you guys have some stores, online, that you prefer on a recommendation basis. I've already purchased my tune-up items, but the brakes need some work and I'll likely end up having to replace the steering stem bearing, front CV axles and a few other things down the road.

      Does anyone know how to access the check engine codes on a 2018 450 sportsman. Just changed battery and spark plug . It runs fine but the light is on and I need this to plow snow and need it reliable. Any ideas . Thanks

      It will go into neutral, 1st, 2nd, and reverse but nothing after 2nd gear. The shifter moves freely going up completely nothing but when you shift down it works. I’m not sure if it’s tranny issue worth messing with or if I should just buy a new one.  Overall besides that the thing runs like new.
