If cleaning out the fuel pump got it running, you may need to replace the fuel pump. The brake lights are connected with the head lights but the rear tail light is. Your problem may be the voltage regulator. Check to see if the headlight bulb and tail light bulbs are ok or burned out. Also are the lights in the speedo working. Even if the voltage regulator is shot the brake light will work since it's not on continuously like the other lights.

Nice dependable sled. I have a 92 jag also. Been one of my best sleds as far as reliablity goes.

Is it just me, or does this problem sound like it could be a stator?

1. Do you have spark?
2. Are your carbs getting fuel?
3. Are your cylinders getting fuel?

Sounds like you got all the lights working again?

Is this the 92 Jag.. or 92 Jag Deluxe? The Deluxe has a battery. I have the Deluxe.

Keep posting with more info and things tested, we will figure this out

[limegreen]I have a 92 Jag Special and had a similar problem that was easily fixed. There is a bypass plug near the handlbars under the hood that senses the fuel to the carbs and affects the spark, it is two plugs that are connected. If one of them is unplugged your sled will get no spark, or very little of it. Expect fouled pluggs too from that, and it will smell rich since the cylinders are still getting fuel if it is running but no combustion, so it floods itself. Maybe this will help you look for another reason.[/limegreen]

i got good spark and plenty of fuel to cylindersand carb.
it's a jag deluxe but it doesn't have electric start or the battery.
the guy i bought it off was a real hack.the head gaskits on it were
made of tarpaper.it was missing the fuel pump and the heads were on backwards.
i've been using browns leisure world as a reference. i'm not a mechanic
but have had lots of fun fixing her up.it runs real good and is easy to handle and control.
i've got alot of time into it and have fun riding it.
anyway,none of the lights are working and the went out at the same time.
everything else is working good,starts up 2 pulls.

this may have a lighting coil seperate from the stator.
