I stopped for gas, and when I pulled away from the pump I noticed I had no headlight & the speedo went blank.It was only out for a few seconds then came back on so I started heading back.went about 20 mi. with no problem, and then the lights/screen started to interminttly go on, and off.Never stayed off for more than a few seconds but did it the rest of the way home.Also, one of the times I noticed when I was at a idle the RPM gauge showed 5,000rpm. Then about a mile from the cabin the red temp light came on but it seemed real dim and no matter how much powder I ran it through I could not get it to go out.I started it the next day no temp light, and I could not get it to act up again.I did not run it for a long time though. Just enough to make sure the coolant was circulating. Looking for idea's before I tear into this. When a voltage regulator goes does it always blow the bulbs? anyone have a lighting coil intermintly go bad ? bad ground? Any help would be apprecated.

Do you have to pull the brace to get at these plugs? what color wires? thanks for the ideas. :thumbsup:

Had this happen as well. Lost hi beams, then speedo/tach did the same thing, flickered, then came back on - I then lost the low beams and tail lights. I changed voltage regulator and replaced all bulbs as they were all blown. Has ran fine since with no other issues.

How much is a voltage regulator? I hope it's that, and not the stator.

Found a wire rubbed through going to the regulator. May get off cheap on this one.
