Hello, I am new to this forum other than reading posts from time to time. I appreciate all of the insightful info.
Anyway, I bought a 2007 Sportsman 500 efi that was in kind of rough shape (because it was in my price range). I seem to have everything working now except that the tach does not register anything until I get much higher in rpm's. Even at that point it starts to register in the 100's instead of 1000's.
Also, the battery warning light shows up at higher rpm's then goes away again at lower rpm's including idle. I rode it a while today to see if the battery would eventually go dead but it did not. At idle, the battery reads 12.4 then goes up only slightly with higher rpm's (around 12.6).
I am going to start the stator tests later tonight but I wanted to see if anyone has seen these problems happen together and if they are related.
Thanks in advance for your help.
