battery fully discharged problem need help!

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I have 1993 YAMAHA KODIAK YFM400 I have a problem that the battery fully discharged this happened the second time.

the first time it happens I fund out that the wire of rectifier/regulator was disconnected,I connected the wire and replace the battery with a new one.

the second time was last Friday after I already went out a week before and everything was fine,I checked before went out that the charging voltage was O.K. it was about 13.5Vdc and battery voltage was O.K. 12.5Vdc then when I was up hill the ATV was very hot it shut down in the middle,I was able to pull start it and continue.

my questions are :

1.is their any connection between the motor hot and the battery shorted? maybe the rectifier/regulator is shorting or the A.C. magneto? but I could continue to ride

2.what do I need to check? what can I do in order to prevent it to happen again.

Thanks in advanced

Oren

      I am in need of a battery for 1997 Yamaha Big Bear 4x4 350cc. I would like to buy a battery from an online store. Local batteries see be $50 more for me. If anyone has any online store recommendations please let me know.
      Also i have searched around online to see which battery has best reviews and it seems as Yuasa is the battery people indicate is best, followed by Motorcross and Throtle X. Any one know about the scorpion batteries from batterystuff? I would like the best cheapest battery.
      Any suggestions would be great thanks.

      A week ago I could not even get close to starting it. But now I adjusted the valves (exhaust valve was not closed). i got it running but would not run without choke. i adjusted the float because it was to low tried starting it up again and it would not even start. So i went back and looked at the valves and the valve was now open again so i adjusted it and it started right up and ran perfect without choke. So i put it all back together thinking it was ready to go. Started it up and let it run for a little bit. i turned it off and tried starting it again there was NOTHING. took it apart and there was 0 compression and the exhaust valve was open again. I am completely lost need help PLEASE!!!:aargh:
