I have a 2004 660 that has been having some issue's with dying while riding. It runs great: then all of the sudden die's. When I try to re-start, it almost acts like the battery is laboring. I've had the valves adjusted and the fuel pump checked for proper flow. I even stepped up to a hotter plug. It will eventually start, but most of the time I end up running the battery down. Is it possible a weak battery could be causing this? I have a winch on the unit as well as a radio/cd player. Maybe I'm getting draw from one of those that could be draining the battery? The battery is only a year and a 1/2 old.

unless your using your winch alot I can't see that running the battery down but a dead battery will cause it to die and if the battery is putting out less then 12 volts when cranking it will be hard to start.Another issue is it could be getting hot.

This does happen when the unit gets hot. It acts as if it is draining the battery: which then requires me to have to jump start it. I am getting plenty of coolant flow through the radiator. Don't really know why it is getting hot.

What has been done to the Rhino? Is it stock? Is it modified? Has it been sitting for any extended period of time? When it dies does it sputter out and then die? Can you keep it running by varying the throttle? Does it die immedietely? Have you load tested the battery? Just remember buying parts without a diagnosis is NOT the answer.

Sounds like what mine was doing. Check fuel pump and especially the fuel filter. (the fuel filter fixed it for me, but the pump also died not long after that, so I would check both)
