Battery Charging Saga Continues :(
So just a brief history, I had replaced the battery when I got this quad last winter and it ended up draining shortly after. So I replaced the regulator/rectifier. That didn't work either, so I brought it to a dealer and they said the Stator was bad (whole different dramatic story I won't go into). So they replaced the stator. The battery drained again... But this was like the 5th time so I got yet another new battery and had them test it in the store before I purchased it. Roughly 20 hard hours later the battery dies yet again... Back to the shop and they replaced all the wires coming out from the rectifier. They said it is charging consistently now (at idle 13v and revved at 14v). I get it out again and after riding it for a while again the battery dies... I bring it back to them and they say they can't find anything wrong, that it is charging just fine. I checked it myself just now with the multi-meter and it is at 13v at idle and 14 revved up. The only suggestion they had was to buy and install a voltmeter and watch the volts as I'm riding it and see if the problem only happens when it gets a lot of use. Any suggestions? I'm really upset that this has been an ongoing saga for about 2 months now. I just don't know what to do anymore, seriously thinking about cutting my losses and sell the thing.
