problems with battery going dead

my battery has a voltage of 11.78 volts when it ahs been sitting for a while. sometimes it will start and sometimes not. i think it has to do with not having enough juice to turn it over fast enough to get the fuel to the carb. but with the rhino running it will go up to 13 volts with the rpms up. then after the engine warms up it quits charging and the engine will shut down. i need help thanks

It sounds like you have charging issues. And the low battery probably doesn't have enough volts to get the pump to prime so fuel will get to the carb. It should be putting out around 14 volts. Does it start sputtering before it shuts down?

I'd start by load testing my battery. Pull it and charge it over night on a battery tender or trickle charger - most auto parts stores can load test it (walmart too).

Outside of that, you're getting "charge" voltage when running and then the voltage dies off, that points to a regulator... I haven't checked the service manual, but there many be a test procedure.

Wow... I never heard of a stock battery lasting that long. Most go about 2 years.

Sometimes when the battery gets low the CDi wont work properly...

I would get an Oddesey PC925.... Fits right into the stock location. It is a great battery.

Ya, lately I have been hearing I have got lucky. My battery and fuel pump just went out for the firt time. It is a 2004. I run it at least once every two weeks but most of the time more often. Hopefully it will stay together for many more rides for me.

I have had the same problem, but blame myself for not going out enough to charge the battery. I just replaced the stock with 2 interstate sealed hi cranking amp batteries and I'm hooking them up dual with a trickle charger plug that will keep them fully charged. I needed two so that I would have full power for the RT 40 warn winch and soon to come baja lights. I hope t ofind a batter alternator that will go on my 700 efi. I run sirius sattelite radio too.
