Well I finally got stuck out wheeling with a dead battery and had to get towed back to camp. This is the Third time the battery has been dead and now I know it has something to do with the charging system but don't know if it is a hardware problem or a ridding problem.

The first time this happened my quad was sitting in the garage and went to load it up and it did not start so I jump started it and let it idle for 20 minutes and had no problems for about a month.

The second time I had just come back from ridding and tried to unload out of the truck and it would not start. This time I took it in to the dealer and they said it was a loose battery connection. At that time they switched the battery around so that the positive connection was at the rear (much easier to jump start without removing the battery).

Now I have been ridding for about 5 months now (twice a month 12hrs of riding) with no problems and then I take it out to the sand dunes and after about 2hrs of ridding we decide to stop and enjoy the view but when I tried to start the quad it did not have enough juice to turn over. Everything worked just fine, checked the battery connection and it was tight. Tried for another 5 minutes or so and decided to tow back to camp. When we got back I jump started it just fine and let it idle for about 20 minutes. Now it starts up just fine and rode for about another hour before we called it quits.

Looking back on the three times this has happened I has realized I was at the sand dunes. I'm wondering if the charging system stops charging above a certain RPM and with prolonged HIGH RPMs will drain the battery enough so that the quad won't start.

Looking for any suggestions or if anyone knows the charging curve for the quad.

TIA

Mine acted like that, it was charging but my mechanic thought maybe not enough (3 stage stator or something), so he followed the stator wires back to the first connector(under seat under tin shield on right side)and it wasnt clicked together all the way, therefore not charging fully or all the time. Never died since.

I had the same problem with mine. It ended up that the ground cable on the battery was loose.

A buddy of mine experienced this problem also.u:

Found it to be a loose connection on the Negative Battery Terminal. Couldn't keep it tight. Switched out to a new screw. No problems since...

I have also read this on other sites too...:aniwh:

Thanks for the suggestions, I'll check the connection under the seat this week and look into another screw for the battery. I know the battery was tight when I pulled it out to check for any corrosion. Also after I jumped started the quad and kept the speed under 40 the rest of the day I didn't have any problems. I guess that’s why I was wondering if high speed for prolonged periods of time had an affect. I only rode it for 20min after I jumped it and it started 6 more times after that without issue.

The ground on my 400 would come loose when you pushed the battery back in. Pull it out and tightened it really tight and it would do it again when you slid it in. New screw fix
