2016 Sportsman - "Lo 9.7" error code"

Hi folks,

Don't visit the forum too often but thought I could reach out to you guys for some advice.
.
Tried starting my 2016 Sportsman 570 last weekend and it would turn over but not start. I charged the battery today and tried starting it and just got the click, click, click.

I see the error code "Lo 9.7". Tried Google but only see error codes 10.8, 10.9....

I'm no hard cord ATVer so any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

I'm thinking your voltage is low at 9.7 volts.

first thing u need to do is check acid level in battery and add distilled water if low,
charge battery at lowest setting and see if it charges completely.
start quad and see if u get above 14 volts while quad running, if u do go get battery tested it might be shot.
if u dont have 14 volts i would start with replacing voltage regulator.

I charged it but still didn't start. Just click, click, click.

Am I better off in the long run just replacing the factory battery now? If so, what battery is recommended?

I'm a fan of Odyssey AGM batteries. But a quality AGM battery can be had from a number of reputable manufacturer.

Those are a bit spendy. I was thinking something reliable, better than the factory battery for less than $100...maybe there is no such thing however..

Don't scrimp - spend the extra $ and get a quality sealed AGM battery or go the extra mile and splurge on a Lithium battery. Average battery life is about 2 years for a conventional, vented, flooded lead acid battery - the click, click, click is the vehicle telling you the battery is discharged.

Have you LOOKED at batteries lately?
You can't get a Never-Start from Walmart for less than $100.
I use Walmart batteries exclusively and they average 4-5 years if you keep them charged.
