Hey guy and girls,

My Rappy and YFZ have been in my garage for the past couple of months do to to it being too cold outside to ride. Last night and tonight I wanted to start them up and let them run for a lil while. I jumped on my Rappy and no go. Nothing! SO i took the seat off and jumped started her. She fired up not problems. Same with the YFZ. Jumped her and she fired fired up.

Now the problems is that I have let them run for 10-15min each and once I shut them off they will not fire back up. I have to jump started them every time. I rode both of them many times this last fall. They are both brand new. 07 Rappy and 06 YFZ.

WHat the hell is going on???????????

Thanks for your help.

use a slow charge and follow instructions,might want to purchase 2 battery tenders that'll keep charged to correct voltage always while not in use.

I don't understand... they were in a heated garage. Why would the batteries just die completely?

My raptor has been sitting outside..It's been down to the -30 for a bit.. and now its jumped back up to about 0ish.. I went to go try and start it.. of course the battery was a little low... I brought an extra battery out.. jumped it.. let the atv run for a while.. turned it off... and it cranked right back up.

I figured his atvs would be fine in the heated garage? :3question:

fill em up with fresh gas and stabalizer, charge battery and let them sit. Next season replace gas with fresh stuff, new plug, recharge battery then go ride!!

by the way.. where are you at -30degrees... damn. :crazy:
