I finally got my 96 Jag L/C running last night and took it out on the trail next to the neighborhood when I found that my head lamp, tail light, and dash lights were dim and seem to bounce between really dim and half lit.

Obviously its some sort of electrical problem, but I was hoping someone may offer a checklist of connections to check before I start ripping the sled apart to get at the wiring.

Also, is a multimeter a good tool to use in these cases?

Thanks for any advice.

well does it do that when cold? or does it do it when you go riding for about 20 minutes and then bang! dim lights all over??

when stators go bad they can do that.. then become ground as they heat up.. when there cold again all is ok...but regulators do that too so..

check your connections but it sounds like a regulator to me

Check the groud wire, it is the return wire for a DC system. If it is loose you have a high resistance back to the lighting coil or battery (if you have one) and basically it's like having a 12 volt lamp on 6 volts.
