what voltage regulator did you get. If I remember right those sleds are picky about their regulators.

I think it has to be from polaris and not one you would get from DK for example

disconnect the wire going to the regulator and start and idle the engine . If your lights now work the regulator is shorted. Do not run the engine above idle when you have the regulator disconnected because if you do you will burn out your bulbs because the voltage will get too high.

The voltage is too high. The stator is normally able to produce more energy than the sled needs especially at high rpm . The regulator works to shunt away the excess voltage to ground. sort of like a bullet hole in the side of a 45 gallon drum, you pour water in but it never spills over the top.


In order for the regulator to work properly it must be bolted tight to a clean rust free area of the chassis and the yellow wire must be making a good contact. If yours is making a good contact then the regulator is defective, it and the bulbs must be replaced..........again
