When it went out it scared the shit out of me the bike died in a 5th gear run high in the RPMS like I broke it. I pulled over and found out it was clicking like it was froze. I had completely forgot that the injector runs off of electricity. now I can buy a stock Yamaha battery that runs an amazing 117 dollars or something called platinum for 73 man I love spending money

the bike runs threw the bat. the charging system charges the bat which runs the bike. if it dies again you have a charging issue or a bat that dosnt hold a charge. i had the rectifier/regulator go out on my r6 and it did the same thing

I had a bad battery I posted something on a while ago. It was only 7 months old (or so) and they replaced it under warranty.
I think the factory replacement would have been 70 something and a higher amp battery was 56 :confused:, but since I didn't have to buy it, I didn't care. They gave me the OEM.

cell went bad in mine also. Seems like it might be a little bit common. I got an aftermarket one from Batteries Plus.

Armety did yours not start all of a sudden or just die when you rode it? mine isn't the common battery symptoms. you charge it and you can put around but you do a Top speed run and it dies and won't start. I'm having my battery replaced I hope it fixes my problem. Rockymountainatv.com sales them for 50 bucks I believe probably the cheapest you'll find the yamaha battery is like 117

Mine slowly started dieing. Wouldn't hold a charge very long, ect. then it just died, I had to jump it all the time. I used a store to match up teh battery, don't remember the brand. Batteries Plus is the store.

My batt just shit the bed as well :( I ordered the cheap lead acid for 56.00 delivered from RMATV. For that price I don't mind replacing it, even once a year if needed, but for the replacment cost of the AGM it would need to last 2-1/2 years or more to be worth it for me.

yes but are you guys having the problem I'm having? The bike dies while I am riding it at full throttle....sounds like you guys can jump your bikes and it rides around fine? I hope that isn't the case because then I don't know whats causing my bike to do what it does

Pull strarted it? LOL
Do you mean push started it?
When you said pull started im think of a cord that you pull. Also if what these guys are saying is true that if the battery goes dead (while riding it) and the bike shuts off, that means the generator doesnt produce enough electricity to run the fuel pump and injectors. If thats ture then push starting it and leting it self charge shouldnt work.

I know on a car the alternator produces enough charge to run the vechile as long as its running. So you can remove the battery from the vehcile after its started and it will still drive. If you dissconnect the battery from your car while its running and it shuts off, that means you alternator is no good. Why does this theory not work in the quad? And if it does then that would mean you have a chareing problem (alternator) not a battery problem.

Most the time what happens is that under load the bike is useing more power then a bad alternator is producing. At idle when you not demanding High Output of the injector and fuel pump the voltage If checked could apear to be ok. But when your acutally out riding it will use more power then whats being put back into the battery and the battery slowly drains. Once the battery gets low enough its slowly lowers the voltage running to the fuel pump and injectors. You then have runabilty problems and once it dies it doesnt want to restart again since the battery is low or dead. After a charge of the battery (assuming the battery is good and will hold the charge) your able to start the bike and it runs fine again, until the cycle starts over again and you use more power then is being produced to charge the battery.

If you able to remove the battery, charge it, leave it out for a few days not being charged, install it back in the bike and have it start right up, means your battery is good and able to hold a charge for a few days. That means you dont have a battery problem.
If you dont have a battery problem, but yet your battery keeps going dead then you have a charging problem.

heres the stumper though...a fully charged battery should be enough to go through a wide open run. Its not it dies after the brand new battery was charged and makes the bike hard to start. Something isn't right I wonder what....
