I have a AGM battery from Interstate in my 300 KQ. Been good so far but I always keep it on a small charger/maintainer when I donít use my quad. My charger/maintainer comes with a quick connection to attach to the battery. So itís simply plug n play. And that is quite a few batteries to have gone through in those years. Do you operate a winch and or plow frequently..? Using these items frequently can quickly drain your battery. Unlike a deep cycle battery. If you drain or kill a normal lead acid battery several times they wonít hold their charge after a while. I bought my Ď00 KQ new back in Ď99. So far Iíve only replaced the battery twice from the original. Lastly, is your charging system charging correctly..? You can test this using a multimeter. Start your quad and take a reading at the battery at idle. You should be around 13.5 to 14.0 volts at idle. Now rev the engine and see how much the reading increases. If it doesnít change much then you may have an issue with your charging system.
