Cutting out unless lights are on.

Hi, I've got an arctic cat 300 2001 model year.
Upon acceleration I'll get engine misfiring pop pop pop no power but if I reach up and turn the key to lights on position she takes off and clears right up smooth and lots of power.
I've checked the ignition switch for resistance and all OK in either position checked all the plugs and wiring grounds ect but still having this issue any ideas.

Sounds like the voltage regulator. Test voltage at battery at idle, revving and with lights on then off.

Aha, think you nailed it!
13.8 idle voltage goes up with intense of rpm all the way to 17v.
With lights on voltage remains goes no higher than 14.8 with increased rpm.
