    Bad regulator, go to the dealer and get a polaris one, or someone else on here also did a conversion to an arctic cat one, they are said to be a better unit.

    No doubt i would raise H311 with who ever you bought that from. I'd want not only my regulator replaced but every bulb in the sled. Bad regulator for sure. I've had really good luck with the one's out of sledding magazine's; shade tree, spankys, performance engineering etc.

    I have not had any luck with aftermarket VRs either. But in my case when it went bad it blew my bulbs. the Aftermarket just didn't work period. I wasted alot of time and $ before getting an OEM regulator.

    Some of the XC's are very picky on what regulator you install. Use a genuine Polaris one.
    I have a Cat one on my sled, but the XLT's aren't picky.

    I agree with the guys above aftermarket ones are not as good as Polaris ones. However if the regulator is not making good contact to ground or the plug to the yellow is loose the regulator will not be able to keep the voltage down. Make sure you have good connections to all wires and also clean contact to chassis ground.

    If you read through that post it says he used a 2000 600 ZRT, that is on a polaris also so that one should work for you.
