I have a 2004 sportsman 500h.o., that I have had great luck with, except for the fact that it runs through a lot of batteries! Is there something that draws power when the machine sits, or are Polaris batteries just crap? Thanx guys.
put a volt meter on the battery first, should be no lower then 13.1 volts at 1200 rpm. if it is you have a bad stator, if it charges ok I would disconnect any after market accesories including the winch and see how that goes, if it still goes dead, start following wires, make sure nothing rubbed through.
