Check all connections (plug ins) for corrosion and also the ground.

i would start with the ground connections. but yes, check all plugs and wiring, maybe a bare wire grounding somewhere. also check under your seat , the wires that go to the rear taillight, had an old sled that would go dim when i put the brakes on, found a bare wire grounding under the seat.

Deadsledz may be correct. Last week was my first ride of the season and I had the same problem with my 95 Panther. I put the regulator in from my EXT and it cured the problem. I always thought a bad regulator would just blow out lights but it dimmed my lights and the handlebar heaters didn't work (not enough juice). Good luck and let us know. Too many times I never know if the advise works.
