Will running a sled without the battery cause the voltage reg. to burn up? My kids run their little doo citation 250 around with no batt. and I put a new headlight in it and it instantly burnt out. The manual says dont run w/out a batt. but I taped up the pos. cable and let them go with that. Any ideas? thanks!

I would think that it wouldnt hurt anything. The Battery is usually for 1: the electric start, or 2: older EFI. The voltage regulator regulates the voltage created by the motor, wich increases as the RPMs increase. Your VR is probly just bad, but i dont think runnin the sled without a battery would cause it it to go out. I could be wrong though, and some one will chime in if i am.
