1999 arctic cat 250 2x4 brake light question.

Recommended Posts

Does a 1999 arctic cat 250 2x4 have a brake light? Reason I ask is I just got one and the brake light wasn't working. I traced the brake switch wire from the hand brake and its not plugged into the harness not could I find a place to plug it into. I'm wondering if it had a brake light or maybe the harness that it plugs into maybe had been ripped off by previous owner. Any help is appreciated.

dont quote me on this but, im thinking it is just a tail light. i believe brake lights started in the 2000s as a *trail package* add on. i looked online at arctic cat parts, and it seemed to me to be tail light only.

you can pm swampcat07 who might have a better insight on this ...

Thanks for the response oxidized_black, I did check the bulb and it has 2 filaments and the plug for it has the brake light wire. I ran a hot wire to it just to make sure it worked and it did, Im just confused on the main harness that runs to the front. I cant find a female plug to plug the male plug that's coming from the brake switch. Im gonna tare it down tomorrow and check the whole harness. My guess is its came unplugged and somehow got pulled back under the plastic somewhere, Or it was just a tail light and the brake switch was standard but the light was optional that the 250 didn't have in 1999. Ill update the post when I do the tare down. If I don't find the plug ill contact swampcat07..

I got a chance to look at this today and I did find the wire that I was missing. it had fell down behind the plastic but I couldn't see it by looking under the fenders. I hooked it up to brake light switch and I now have a brake light.. Maybe this will help someone else along the was.. thanks for all the help..

      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

      Recently I noticed gas leaking from under the gas tank on my 2005 250 2x4. As I looked closer it appears to be leaking from the shut off valve under the tank. It's the valve with the handle that can be turned to open, close or reserve. Can this part be replaced? Thank you.

      I have a 1999 250 Yamaha bear tracker was told it needed a coil to run got into it to day found out that the kill switch was wired together then I found were they put a new cdi on it they cut all the plugs off the stator wires and the cdi wires I found bits and pieces of wireing diagrams blue pick up wire to red and white green wire to white and green wire rolled it over Had a test light on the coil wire it showed there was juice going to it but no spark on the plug and the coil is a brand new one put it on before trying to test the spark did I miss something or have something hooked up wrong already have plans on a new cdi and stator and pick up coil before I go that far like to hear it run. Thank you for the help in advance
