well, I had a dim headlight earlier in the year, and I kept burning out the low beam on the headlight. It seemed to be better, but instead of putting a new light in, first I put a new voltage regulator in. This machine has electric start. Anyhow, it now is dim again even with the new regulator. I am starting to think that there may be a dead short somewhere? I am hoping someone else has had this problem or has some ideas. Any input at all will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance

Do the lights on the dash, and brake lights dim too? Or just the head light?

Sorry folks, I guess I should have been a lil more specific. Yes it is the right bulb and yes everything is dimmer. The warmers are cool as well. I had a fellow mention that he had a similar problem and it turned out to be his tail light shorting out.

may start unplugging things and see if you can find it, if it might be the tail light i would say dissconnect it under the seat so you would have to pull the seat off to do that, its only 2 bolts, there may be a wire that is pinched or chafing under the seat

Dim headlight/dash = Wires grounding out on the chassis. You'll have to umplug one thing at a time untill they brighten up, or pull out the voltmeter and check for continuity on each loop.
