9 posts in this topic

so i have a 99 supersport and last yr once in a great while id notice the headlight would go dim and then come back to bright...well didnt think nothin of it and today i was ridin the other sled and my g/f had mine and i noticed the headlight was dim and when we stopped she said her hands were gettin cold....and sure enough the hand grips were cold! i shut it off and started again and then the ACC light was on and so was the headlight but after 2 mins when the grips were gettin warm the ACC and headlight went dim and i waited and the grips got cold....i talked to the guy who services my sled and said it could be the ground so i checked and its tight,my buddies mom has the same sled and he said she had the same problem and replaced the heat grip/headlight control on the left handle bar side and this fixed it....but said just that piece was over $300 if i remember right!!!! dont wanna spend that much but if i must i guess i will....any other suggestions? i am guessin a loose wire but where do i check? thanks for any help

Check your connections to everything, sounds like one is loose, or one gets too hot and shuts itself off

Not too hot as mine seems to do it right away when cold and then eventually kicks in. Scott, I apprecieate whatever information you can get for me.

Thanks.

Scott,

Hey, did you figure out what your problem was. I'm not sure.

Once again I start the sled, dim lights all around (front, back, dash) and after about 10 minutes or so of running they are fine and stay that way until I shut down??

Voltage Regulator. Mine did the same thing. I changed it out a couple of weeks ago and the problem is gone. A 15 dollar repair!

Same here, mine was a little squire with one wire coming off it and it was mounted right below the choke and tool box on the inside of the hood. Everything worked after replacing it.

    • HAs anyone here used this software to map your lakes?  Has anyone downloaded the lakes that are on the shared cloud?  I have a hook 7 and some of the lakes around have been mapped, it would be nice to download them and use that instead of the other map.
    •   Is that the work around garmin uses to avoid licensing the Lowrance patent?    Or was the patent on something different?
    • I was on private land that I have shot 8 birds in 10 seasons.Over 300 acres of prime land by Caledonia but none in our group of 4 scored this year. Just makes me more excited for next year. Might try the last season but will probably be into fishing by that time. Good Luck to All.....
    • Love the zoom horny toads. Man they can have some vicious blowups. Im a huge fan of buzzbaits so to be able to use this frog like a buzzbait in some thick weeds is awesome.
    • Lilacs are really leafing out here in central MN.  On my few walks through the woods, the mushrooms have been few and far between: No more scarlet cups, no pheasant backs, no oysters. I haven't went to my morel spots because there's no hurry and I don't want to trample them, but I doubt they're up very far around here if the pheasant backs haven't even fruited. I'll be back out today before the rain checking on things, though. 
    •   Just stating the facts as they stand Bear.  You listen or read at all what the national NHL analysts are saying/writing about the Wild's present/recent past/future?  I've said before I love your postivity and I'm glad too that MN has an NHL team. Spin is required to hide the facts, spin is needed to turn what is not good and make it sound good, spin is needed to make it sound like you are doing your job well when in fact we are no closer than we were 3-4 years ago.  Seriously....any chump could have improved the team from what it was when Fletch took over...you and I could have done that. If you just look inside the box, wow we are much improved; but if you look outside the box and compare yourself to the rest of the league you realize we really have not climbed the ladder very much...16th, 15th, 14th, 13th, 12th, 11th, 10th in the NHL does not cut it for me...for you it does and thus our differences and our ability to argue/discuss this back and forth.
    • Your best angle of attack should come like this: Do you need to control your trolling motor with your sonar? if so you have 2 choices. Lowrance uses motor guide and H-bird goes with Minnkota. If that is not a requirement than the field is wide open. IMO don't go with a screen smaller than 9" with side imaging there is so much detail that its hard to see on a 7" screen. I'd stay away from garmin or any unit that doesn't have a true down scan ducer that uses software to produce a down scan image there is just too much stuff lost without it.   
    • It's a pop or in my case an ice tea bottle with several 1/8" holes near the bottom of the bottle.  I then roll up paper towels and get as many as I can stacked inside the bottle.  When I need to cough I unscrew the top and cough into it.  It definitely softens then noise to more of a rush of air sound.
    • I use the standard frogs (non-Popping) as i feel i can always pop a non-popping.  I do like to throw into cover and hit those pockets and open area's ... there is times when walking it really makes a big difference on strikes.  Can't wait for the season!!  i was just experimenting with the frogs and not bass fishing yet.   We will keep in touch and see how ya all are doing with the frogs this summer.  I am intrigued also with the Zoom Horny toad, ready to try those also.   Cret
    • What spin is needed? We lost, this happens all the time in the playoffs, that is why they play the games. Our very own team has bounced two division leaders in the past 4 years, are we going to give them credit for those series wins or just completely focus on the negative and whine about everything. There are plenty of positives to take away from this season, really there is a ton to be excited about going forward if you don't solely focus on all thing negative.
