2002 xcsp 800 NO LIGHTS GAUGES OR TACH! PLEASEEE HELPPPP!!

so i took my carbs out to clean them like i have done twice already never having a problem... put them back in and now i have no gauges or tach and just a very very dim headlight... it kept me from riding this past weekend and i need to get it resolved before all this powders gone... im hoping some1 can tell me im an idiot and knocked loose a ground wire somewhere but any help at all is much appreciated. Thanks Again,Joe Btw.. Sled starts and runs mint and that means anything... no effect to the performance at all

Welcome to the forum! Go back and look at the wires around the airbox, it's possible that you dislodged one of the wires that come from the stator. The stator has two "sides"; one for the engine, one for the accessories like lights, gauges and tach. There should be two wire bundles coming out of the recoil area and one single wire. The single wire is a ground, but usually only affects your ability to shut the sled off. Check the bundle connectors to make sure they are running ok. You should also check the voltage regulator (near the footwell on the right side. It may have a wire knocked off too. Hope it's easy; stator problems are kind of spendy...

so i decided to start from scratch... pulled the carbs back out to make sure i could see everything... back tracked every wire i could find unplugged them plugged them back in.. installed the carbs .. fired her up and nothing.. still no power.. so then i fell back on the voltage regulator which i didnt think would be it.. everything was tight.. unplugged the regulator and i have juice! im guessing that means its a bad regulator?took it fora quick spin around the yard to see what would happen.. bad idea... as soon as i matted the throttle the headlight blew... i still have the tach/highbeam and brake... looks like i need a regulator? or am i missing something..

Without a regulator, you will be pushing about 40-50 volts to the gauges and headlight. I would suspect the regulator.

X2 on the regulator. Been there done that. Also dont cheap out on the regulator buy the one from Polaris if you can, I have had bad luck with aftermarket regulators.
Just my two cents
Good luck
