This one might work better. I am not sure what orientation your handlebars are in with your original reservoir. Compare pics with the amazon pics and get the closest one to what you have now. I have the one I posted before, but not sure it will work on my fourtrax 300. Have yet to hold it in place (too many projects).

Will do I'll check it out and compare tomorrow when I get home. It's wierd none of them say they are compatible with no 01 recon. But I'll have to cobble it together no matter what I'm sure. Thanks again

When I look up Recon 250 , it looks like they started in 2002 and you say you have a 2001 , are you sure it is a Recon and not a EX if it is a 2001 ? --------- I don't know about the switch working for you here is a print of a 2002 , does your brake pedal and your look anything like this

2002 250 Recon :

Yup it's definitely a 01, wierd that it says that as I think they had them in 99. Anyway I'll pull the plastic and get a look at foot brake today. Here's a pic of machine and right hand brake.

Thanks for pics!

You can buy a used OEM Honda master cylinder assembly taken from a 03 & up Rincon, 04-07 400AT Rancher, 05-11 500 Foreman, etc, as those master cylinders have two switches mounted that activate each time you apply the front brakes. You can use either one of those switches for a brake light. I put one on my 2000 Rancher from an early Rincon (was a cheap upgrade, including the short harness!), so I could add MelATV's and Jeepwm69's Start-in-any-gear mod. Check out powersportsnation.com (best option) or the fLeebay auction site for deals on those larger master upgrades.

Thanks for the info guys. I will check eBay for the rincon master cylinder for sure. It does look good in the pics, to be fair that's after a good cleaning:-) plastics are scuffed but nothing cracked, and came with basically new bear claws.

Yep, that one is complete with two switches along with the short switches harness. Its a bit pricy, but at least it is complete.
