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

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??

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.
