This is my third battery.When I pull start the engine without the battery in place it starts up fine but I have no lights no cooling fan. I meter it at the battery terminal and it reads 1.5 volts. I'm thinking it's the alternator .

Check all your body grounds first. Meaning take every ground off and clean them first. Check the tightness of the ground bolts. Once that is done then proceed with your troubleshooting. Guessing costs money so be 100% sure. D/L a shop manual and follow their test procedures.

If you replace the battery how long does it hold up before it quits working days ,weeks, months. If the battery keeps loseing it's charge you may have an electirical problme that is draining the battery.

I have to agree, check all your grounds. Also check your voltage regulator and stator. What does it read at higher rpms? It's a 12V battery and should be reading 13V + i would think.

I read somewhere that there is a recall on some stators. What year is your quad?

If you can run it with out the battery then I would think that the problem is not your alternator, as the alternator is providing the voltage to provide spark. Did your gauge cluster die before this happened? (no speedometer, and Loss of 4 wheel drive) I know the units in the 2000's had an issue with water getting into the gauge cluster, and EVERYTHING runs through that damn thing.

      It's a 150cc ATV, automatic transmission, automatic starter, with zero electric devices.
      I have to mount at least some front/rear lights. But for how many watts should I aim in total on entire ATV? You know, for example there are 10/50/200 Watt lights. But it's impossible to order some, when I don't know if I should keep entire ATV under 100 Watts? Under 500 Watts? Under 1000 Watts?

      Trying to replace the carburetor on my 2003 Bear Tracker 250. Two brand new carbs in a row from different suppliers.   Both leak fuel out over flow and intake as soon as I turn the gas on. Any ideas. Am I doing something wrong?

      So I’ve had this quad for the better part of a month, and it’s been hard to start since the day I bought it. Once it warms up it idles just fine and has plenty of power and starts no problem, but cold it takes 20 seconds minimum of straight cranking to start it.
      It’s not really too big of an issue, I’m just curious as to why it takes so long. Earlier today, it took me about 2 minutes of on/off cranking to get it to fire.
      i have attached a video of a cold start to show you what I mean.

      Hello,
      I recently picked up an ‘07 KFX 700. All was going well, rode it about 40 miles, when it started bogging at low speeds. If I kept the revs higher, I was just fine. Also, a persistent issue since I picked it up is the fairly difficult start (but it is abnormally cold right now and the quad is jetted for the dunes at summertime).
      Regarding the complete lack of idle, I have to rev it a couple times to get it to idle after starting it, after which it’s 50/50 whether it remains idling. I don’t have low fuel, but all of this began after I rode it pretty hard and the radiator fan kicked in. Might be overheating, just wanted to hear your opinions.

      I have a 425 Magnum that idles great but seems to flood out when I rev it up, sputters, backfires a little somtimes. No water in gas, good fuel filter, carb seems to be fine, good working diaphram. Plug change makes no difference whatsoever.
