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.

      doesn't idle at times but sometimes when it does as soon as I touch the throttle it just shuts off, what could possibly be the problem? I thank you very much for any help, Thanks.

      Just now rolling over 100k miles. Been feeling some steering weirdness so I get one front wheel up in the air and push at 3 and 9 and sure enough there's some wobble. Pushing at 12 and 6 gives no play at all.
      Although I'll probably be replacing the worn part myself I need some help diagnosing what all might need to be replaced. And since I need an alignment anyway I've made a deal w/ my local Goodyear tire shop to do a pre alignment inspection and identify my bad part(s) so I can replace them before they do the job.
      When I drop the car off what specific parts should I ask them to look at? I'm sure tie rod ends but what other kind of worn parts could be causing movement on the 3-9 push test?

      I have had a 2002 Suzuki King Quad 500 for almost a year. This is a question I’ve posted before, but likely missed the answer due to being new to the site. Here’s the issue. When in 4 wheel drive, especially in low range, especially when pulling a load downhill, I hear a lot of clanking in the front end. As if the front drive shaft was binding then unbinding. A friend who had a 1987 Dodge 4x4, told me all the noise his front end made when in 4 wheel drive was entirely normal. So, is this something I should worry about? I have all the bodywork and tank off right now doing a valve adjustment and carb rebuild. If I gotta do something, I’d like to do it now. Lastly, I’d love to find a carb tuning guide for this era of Mikuni. Haven’t tracked one down yet. Any thoughts of where to find one? Great forum. Have really enjoyed it so far.

      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 !!
