2004 Suzuki Eiger 400 - Battery/Electrical Problems


Recommended Posts

I have a 2004 eigar 400 4x4. I am having trouble finding out why the battery will not stay charged. I have tried two new battery's. I can charge the battery and the quad will start but after it has ran for a while the battery goes dead. hit the starter and all it will do is cleck. while it is running with low battery you turn on the lights and it kill's the motor.

any ideas, I would love to get it running.

I'd say a bad stator or bad connection coming from the stator. Fire it up & see what the voltage reading is @ the battery, should be around 14.4 volts. Next check voltage output @ the stator connector with the engine running. Doing a continuity test on the stator wold be a good idea as well, with the engine off.

Checking all the connections would be a good idea, BUT....if you've boiled out a few batteries I'd definately be looking @ the regulator. It sounds like it's overcharging. Checking the out-put voltage @ the stator and @ the battery would help to figure it out. Looking past what you where "told", without checking it you are just taking stabs into the dark. Boiling out batteries tells me it is ovvercharging by quite a bit!! ( some stators output as much as 36v, that's WAY too much for a 12v system!)
