Need help troubleshooting Sportsman 570
I have a 2015 Sportsman 570 which goes through a lot of mud (and sometimes doesn't make it through).
The battery went dead, I replaced it, happened again.
Fast forward and this is what I discovered:
With the key off, there is a 50 amp draw on the battery.
Disconnecting the voltage regulator from the stator (the 3 yellow wire connector) stop the draw.
I checked the yellow wiring from the VR to the stator and the plastic sheathing was filled with wet mud and the place where it routes between the oil filter and the engine was jammed with mud. I rerouted the wire and it still draws ~50 amps with key off.
That's as far as my understanding can get me.
Is the problem the VR, the stator, or something else?
