Help with serial number

Just picked up what I believe to be a 1990 Cougar 500. Here is the number on the tunnel. 9011233.

Can someone help identify the year etc.? Thanks!

There should be a manufacture date on the tag on the "throttle" side of the tunnel. What ever date is shown, the sled is the next model year. Ex. 9/89, would be a 1990 model. The 1990 was the last year of the 500cc fan, 91 went to a 440 liquid. Great old sleds!

Thanks. Yes there is a manufacturing date of 6/89 also. So 1990 it is!

Engine id tag says:

Arctic Cat
AM50A6
500 F/C
0662-043

Tag on drive belt cover says 1990 Arctic Cat Cougar Mountain Cat.

This is my first sled. Bought it from a friend of mine. I have riden a couple of times short rides about 15 miles each one.

Can someone tell if there are owners manuals or shop manuals somewhere on line to download?

Here are a few pix. Take a look let me know what you think?
