VilRuS 0 Posted March 8 Hello, I have a 2006 King Quad that seems to run itself dead after a couple hours of use. I had it out riding my trails and after about 2 hours of continuous riding (only shut off once), it started spitting and sputtering and eventually died. The battery was too drained for the electric start but I was able to pull start it but it was really finicky, ie. Whenever I gave it gas it'd spit and sputter some more and it died two more times before getting it on the trailer. I'm assuming it's a bad stator and/regulator from everything I've read but am seeing if anyone has anything else to add? I used a multimeter and tested the battery. Mind you this battery is brand new and this was the first time I've used it. I had it do the same thing with the previous battery when I was ice fishing and used my portable jump started to get enough juice to get it on the trailer but that day I accidentally hit the switch for my led light bar and they were on for quite a while. I figured it was due to that draining that battery. Definitely seems that the electrical system isn't charging the battery or giving the additional voltage it should. Machine off, fully charged, after hooked up to a tender it read: 12.5v Machine idling: 12.4 and losing 0.01v about every 2min. Revving: didn't increase the voltage at all just kept slowly draining. I do have heated grips and an aftermarket led light bar on it. I've read those can cause a big amperage draw which can overheat the stator coils and cause a short or something to that affect. Any advice is appreciated but I feel ill be buying a new stator and regulator. Thanks!
