06 Predator battery problem

I have an 06 troy Lee 500 and my battery will not charge. the battery is burnt out after 4 hours of riding. I have a new rectifier and sent stator to have it rebuilt and the company I sent it to said stator was fine. Took quad to a local repair shop and they told me what i already knew that stator and rectifier are fine. What else will kill my battery to the point it needs to be replaced every time I ride? Also how does one check this. It comes from rectifier and goes to battery, my guess it that it takes the dc power from rectifier and goes to the battery to charge. Could this be bad?

thank you

The battery dies after 4 hours of riding, and will not charge after riding. Battery is totally dead. Have taken quad to a shop and they found nothing wrong with stator or rectifier. I was asking if there is a way to check the connectors from Rectifier to battery. I posted pics of them.

Thank you
I have had the stator and rectifier checked at a shop and they found nothing wrong with them. So what else will kill the battery?
Not sure what you mean by that.
Well it never gets below 30 degrees here in the winter. The heat here will kill battery's but that is not my problem. Could the wire harness be bad?
What would be need to test? Add how does one test this? I have a Clymer book on this quad and can not seem to find what the specs are on that connector .

Thank you for your help.

So any reading less than that would it mean the connector is bad?

Thank you again.
Well I know the battery is ok because it is new.
Well it my 3rd battery in 2 months.
