98 XLT touring

My lights and gauges are not working. I just bought the sled a week ago. Works well but I need the lights and gauges to work. Any suggestions as to where I can start?

Voltage regulator is more than likely bad. Are all the bulbs blown out?

If all bulbs are blown than the regulator took a crap and over powered the bulbs and blew them

Depends on what you buy and where you buy it from. From what I've seen / read / heard, buy a new one from Polaris. You'll spend more, but it will work reliably. Used ones will save you some cash, but their life expectancy is a complete gamble. After-market ones are also cheaper, but many people say they either don't work at all or quit after minimal use.

The Polaris part number that you're looking for is 4060123.

Being in Canada, you may want to go through Motorcycle, Motocross, ATV, Snowmobile, Marine and Bicycle Apparel, Parts & Accessories! - Royal Distributing if your local dealers are selling only at full list price.

Your speedo would work assuming it is driven by a square cable. Unless they switched to electronic speedo?

They ran cable drive all the way until 05? when the fusion came out.

The 05 and up Edge chassis sleds have the cable, the IQ platform sleds got the sensor. There went our early warning system for PTO side driveline bearing failure

Exactly my thought. Sorry to go off topic and ask something for myself, but my spedometer starts off at about 7mph even when its off. It works but it just starts there. Should i just replace it or not worry about it?
