Anyone know what causes the lights to blow? Someone told me to ckeck or replace a resister? Something at the front of the machine?

All my lights blew on my 96 500. It happened when i took the battery out and rode it around for a few minutes without one. Not sure if my wires hit something or what. But had to replace all te bulbs including the odometer bulb.

I think on a Polaris it needs to have a battery on it or it will cause the voltage regulator to surge causing the bulbs to blow.

Thanks all,
That sound about right. I'll see if I can find the voltage regulator. Sure wish there was a simple cure.
