Artic Cat 650 Belt light, and review
Over the weekend i was trying to hook up a winch on my new AC 650. I was looking for a hot wire under the seat and i probably did something i wasn't supposed to do. My buddy told me not to use those orange wires and i told him "well lets see what happens." In doing so i triggered the belt light and my quad is stuck in retard mode. I said, "ooops i did a bad thing." Any way, i searched the internet and have found a ton of info on how to reset the kawasaki brands belt light but no luck on my AC. I tried to do the same as the kfx, and prairie but i could only find the one 4 connector. I found the one 2 connector and close by only one 4 prong connector, not two. I was wondering if anyone has played with one yet or has any advise. I am not afraid to experiment with some wires if anyone has any guess's. The owners manual for AC is worthless. It is filled with 900 pages of warning for idiot owners. Like me! I've got a call in to my dealer, but he doesn't know yet because the unit is to new. The dealer is a freind of mine and he said we will call AC tech together when i get out of work.
As a side note, i love the quad. I really like the motor. I race dirt bikes, KTM's in the summer and i ride quads in the fall and winter. I ride with a group of assorted quads like grizzly's, polaris and z400's, but sorry no prairies in our group.... YET! Compared to the grizzly it has better power, (longer, tourqier, faster) but doesn't seem to have the snap of the grizz. The AC has a better ride, for slow and fast stuff. Although, the handling of the grizzly is way better than the AC. The AC will push bad and also is a little to big to fit in small places. The grizz also feels like it will turn much sharper than the AC. Nothing is more fustrating than have to use reverse to navagate a tight turn between trees and the grizz didn't. But over all i like it! The coolest thing is watching the grizz go in reverse over fallen logs and the mighty AC just cruises right over with it's awesome ground clearance.
I will post back after the tech call. Fell free to post any questions on the AC. The grizzly is a beat '03 with 25 inch mud lites. Sorry for the length of the post and the typos.
