Sorry for all the posts but i was riding my sled today and the lights kept going off and staying off for a while then coming back on again and when it goes out the speedometer works but the rpm`s or the instrument lights dont work. Anyone know which wire this is doing and what color is it? and what should i do to fix it or find where its coming from? thanks!

ide just do a thorough job of checking EVERY wire onthe sled. sounds like ya either have a bad ground or a wire shorting out somwhere. id check all of that and if you dont find anything wrong then maybe replace the voltage regulator.

Use a power tester, check before, and after the voltage regulator, when the light is dead.

[8D] sounds like problably a bad voltage regulator or shoted wiring. Try looking unser the seat. I just had a similair problom with my 90 Indy and it was the regulator.

Very doubtful that it's the voltage regulator. When those go shot the lights burn out, not turn off then back on. I know this cuz I just recently blew up all 3 headlights on my dad's sled. Whoops...

its so nice when the fix is so easy...as long as you don't spend hours on end looking for the complicated stuff, but I wouldn't know about that [;)]
