Hi guys I just bought a 1999 400 ex that is missing the tail light. I ordered a light for it. My question is will this be a tail light only or is it a tail/brake? the light I ordered has two wires comming off of it yellow and a green and the bike has the same thanks

The '99 model just has a taillight only. It don't have a brake light. That must be the correct light for yours, because the taillight/brake light has 3 wires going to it.

if you figure this out how you can do this. Can you link me or tell what all needs to get this working and how much the cost would be?
