headlights

Recommended Posts

Purchased a 1993 300 TRX (2 wheel drive) Problem i am having is the headlights "blink" somewhat at idle but get very "dim" when RPM is increased. Grounding issue possible or something wrong with volt regulator. Any help greatly appreciated!

I think you are on the right track, check your electrical connections, grounds, wires and connectors. If it were a rectifier/regulator, then you would probably have charging issues as well. Use a multimeter and check the voltage at the headlight plug. If it is ok, try replacing the bulb.

Sounds like a bad rectifier or ground as stated. Happened to one of my friends and he had both bad ground and bad rectifier but his bulbs would pop when at higher rpms.

I did the test on alternator (per Clymers manual) and it show up as OK. Simply no voltage is going to replentish battery it appers. No change in voltage at battery when engine is accelerated (plus headlights go dim) Thanks for the inpurt!

If your alternator is putting out power, and no charge is going to the battery, then it is most likely the rectifier/regulator that is bad. Or a bad ground somewhere.

      Charging issue?
      I have a 2017 Polaris Sportsman 570 EFI. Yesterday, I start the machine and it says low power (10.6-10.8). This machine is on its second battery. This is a new AGM battery with 50cca more than stock.
      Should I look at the regulator or stator?
      Thanks!!!

      So I want to put LED headlights in my 99 Bayou 220. The stock headlights have some issue in the connector and they only work some of the time, so I want to replace them with LED light bars. I want to run them off the high beam switch. Which wire would this be?

      So I have a 1999 scrambler 500 4x4 and whenever I give it throttle it starts to big down and when I let it off it dies. Its getting spark and fuel. I replaced the fuel pump. The petcock, the carb, fuel lines, fuel filter. And for electrical I've replaced everything but the rev limiter. I took the srv to get it worked on and the guy set the jets and everything on the carb to where it should be and still no luck. The contacts on the ECM are also not touching. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

      The quad starts good and runs good if the choke is on just a little. I installed a carb kit and backed the screw out 13/4 turns to where it was . Any ideas?
      Thanks

      Hello all ! I am looking to replace the headlights in my 2013 brute force 4x2. Nothing is wrong with mine i just want some brighter light. I have noticed from kawais. oem parts picture that it is a , well what appears to be a 3 prong 35w/35w bulb. The part # on the light gives me no cross reference. I am leading to believe that it is a H4 bulb. Any help would be appreciated, because this fall i will be doing some long and late night predator calling to try and eliminate the coyotes on our 400 acre farm. They killed 2 calves this past spring and i am going to call them in and give them a bullet....lol. Just wondering because my night vision kinda stinks and i need bright light for going to my blind and other places. Any help would be appreciated, as in the past you all have provided good info. Thankyou !!
