Have a 96 500 Touring with the 503 fan cooled motor, first the head light burnt out then the tail and speedo light only thing working now (electrically) is the hand warmer and electric start, but the machine is running great.

I read up on it and its either a bad connection,Voltage regulator or a lighting coil is there a way to tell if its the regulator or light coil?

Voltage regulator, change that firsts and foremost, if it was your lighting coil you wouldnt get lights on the speedometer or tach.

Cycle every connector, including grounds. Unhook or unplug and re-attach
It helps.
