Recommended Posts

i have gone through two brand new battery in two rides it starts and runs great then with no warning it just dies. the battery wont charge after. it shorts out and I have to replace it. my question is should the bike run with the battery disconnected. I have a new battery in now and changed the rectifier and when I take the cable loose it dies. is this normal

Hey @go2glamis welcome to Quadcrazy. I would check your stator coil.   It could be over charging the system. Or not charging at all.   You need to see what voltage you have coming from the stator as well as do an ohms test on it.   The engine should run with the battery disconnected, the lights and accessories would not work properly and may shut the engine down if you were to turn them on due to a heavy draw but the engine should run with the battery disconnected.

Thank you very much. Do you know where I would be able the find the procedure and specs to test that?

Here a few pages from the manual. It’s not the same year but should be close enough if not the same.  

I would also start the bike up and put a tester on the battery and see how much voltage your getting at the battery.   As your checking rev the engine a little and see if it changes. Are you handy with an electrical tester ?

Yes I actually tested it already It was staying at 12 to 12.5 then I changed the rectifier and now getting about 14 which is good but it stll dies when the the battery is disconnected so maybe the bike is running off the battery and not the stator

That Could be possable. Test the stator and see what you get and go from there.  Have you checked all the connections as well as your grounding from the battery to the frame? Was the regulator/rectifier an oem part or aftermarket?

Everything on it is stock except the pipe and I put an oem rectifier back on. Not a big fan of aftermarket stuff. But I will also check all my conections

Definitely check all the connections and think about anything that could have happened like a smashed wire somehow, have you tried to jump start the bike with a car by chance ? That can cause problems internally with the rectifier and cdi as well as he stator. Over amperage kills that stuff easy.

Not a car but a charging system and only after the first time I had this issue with a brand new battery that failed

Ok I checked stator and it's only reading 0.150 so will replace and give an update when I get it installed

Just an update

I ordered an aftermarket stater cause it was cheaper (stupid me) I don't have good luck with aftermarket parts and it did not work so returning it and getting the stock one

      I have a 2001 650 quest that ran great. Shut it off, wont start. Got tinkering at a buddies, it ended up in a snowbank. Lost my train of thought since then.  I have a black, red, green  top with two plug in wires yellow and yellow and red I believe.. I have a new battery. Just dunno what to do. I tried hooking the wire coming up to the solenoid on the far side, then directly across I put the positive cable and it instantly started turning over without the button being pressed until I took the cable off.  The little black resistor box has also been eliminated.   Any help would be greatly appreciated..

      Anyone know what the fuse terminal marked UNSWITCH  does  .  Even with the key off it is causing a drain on my battery and I'm trying to figure out  what that terminal goes to.  It's a 10 amp fuse. If I pull it the "short" goes away.  Thanks in advance.

      What's going on party people? First, thank you for allowing me the opportunity to be here. I recently purchased a 2005 yrs 450 and have yet to run the bike at full throttle. The bike fires up, idles, seems like everything runs fine except a little popping when you let off the throttle or until you hit 5th gear. It runs strong; no bogging or sluggishness until you hit 4th gear and open it up. Then it begins to act like it's out of gas or the about to be out. I can pull over and sit for 5-10 min and it runs strong again until you open the throttle. I have the carb off the bike to clean and wrote down a list of factory and what I found installed. I also listed other key factors and hope someone can help and explain. I'm new to the scene and have no prior mechanical experience but my theory is worst case scenario I have to take it to the shop anyway so why not learn. I actually enjoy it. Lol. Thanks a million. Hope to get back on the trails soon.
