2004 Suzuki 700 Twin Peaks Battery Draw 25mA

Recommended Posts

2004 Suzuki Twin Peaks 700

I put my dvm on mA setting and hooked one end to my postive side of the battery and the other end to the positive wire, and read 25mA draw with the engine off, I unpluged all the fuses and componants one at a time and found the brake controller fuse gave me the best results, with it out it now has a draw of only 4mA which should be fine, I have replaced the brake on the cvt belt housing before due to water damage, is there a relay or brake controller box perhaps I should change, its killing my battery after a few days.



any suggestions?

That's interesting and at least you'v isolated that circuit as the issue. Do you have a manual with a wiring diagram?

I've honestly never cracked the book open. That's a good idea. I was thinking it might have a diagram but was leaning toward it didn't

also hoping someone here would have ran into this same issue before. I believe either a relay or the brake controller is shorted due to water intrusion

This is good info.  I just tried to back my LTA-700 KQ out of my shed and the batter was dead as well.  Now, much longer than your few days, but I wouldn't expect a brand new battery to drain even after a couple of weeks.  I'll have to try what you did to see what I have going on if anything.  It was dead a week ago I put a trickle charger on it for a couple of hours and it did start right up, I let it idle another 2 hrs or so as I shuttled wood from my pickup to my wood pile and then put it away.  a week later it was dead again.  This time I charged it over night and I set the battery and it fired right up.   volt meter was acting a little strange … across the battery terminals was reading 20v, then it just started dropping 19.7, 19.2, 18.9, 18.7....did have the patience to see where it bottomed out.  Changed the batteries in the VM and no change.

      My 2014 750 king quad stalls sometimes when I touch or turn the handlebars,the problem has gotten worse,my machine has 475 miles and is only trail ridden,I have a new factory battery and i have 14.2 volts when the quad is running and 13.3 on the battery when not running,also using a multimeter there is no change in volts when turning the bars until it does stall,If I pull the 40 amp power steering fuse it will not stall.......I've been told its the ECU,Hate to buy one if thats not the problem,but its kinda leaning towards that,,,,,need some opinions.

      Can't figure out whats wrong, battery good, charging fine but speedometer needle flashing. I know my fuel sending unit is not working but atv was working well last year. Now it was blowing fuses. I did engine code check but none there. Gas gauge flashes and shows FUEL in capital letters. Need help as just cannot figure this out,
      I might pull the fuel pump out and put new float as likely saturated. Don't know if that would give me all these problems ??

      Hello eeveryone,
      Just picked up an 86 Suzuki LT185 for my daughter, and she's complaining that it bounces so bad over bumps that it nearly throws her off the quad. I have the tire pressures some where around 3 psi. I really can't go any lower than that. I noticed that there isn't anything in the aftermarket world for shocks and springs for this quad. I am wondering what others are doing to soften up the ride. Also wondering if there's a way to fabricate a rear shock, since there isn't one.  I appreciate your feedback.
