Alright last year I burnt out 2 headlights throughout the winter so I went out today and bought another one that cost me 14 dollers, it is the rite watts. So I start up my sled so I turn the light on it works fine. Then after about a 30 secends it got super bright like a power surge and burnt out. Could someone tell me how I could I fix it, because I need a light I do a lot of night riding.

Your voltage regulator could be bad. I had this happen on my old '91 Indy Trail last year. Put new halogens in, and everytime they would get bright and then bang, dead. I believe a new regulator costed me around $15 from my dealer.

I have one from a '95 XCR and one from a '94 XLT... probably the same thing as you have. Let me know if you want one... I'd ship it to you for $10

first, make sure you have good ground too. with the sled running, do a volt check.
1. Position the snowmobile so the ski tips are placed against a stationary object and raise the rear sled off ground.

2. open shroud and secure so it wont bang your cranium.

3.set voltmeter to the 25 AC volt scale

4.Connect one voltmeter wire to the regulator wire while leaving regulator wire connected. Insert the voltmeter lead through the vvoltage regulator plastic connector cover until it contacts the regulator terminal.

5. start sled and increase rpm to 3000 rpm.

6. If voltmeter reads more than 15 volts, remove regulator, clean terminals and retest. If voltage is still above 16, replace regulator.

this is condensed but right out of Clymers book
