Battery issues

Got a 2019 500 kq. Battery keeps dying. Hear a clicking noise from a black box thing on the passenger side of the quad . It's only 4 or 5 months old. Contacted the dealer but no reply yet. Anyone else have issues ?

Iíd check your charging system to see if itís suppling a charge to your battery. However, if your quad is still under warranty Iíd let the dealership look it over. You either have a charging system issue, a bad battery, or something possibly drawing current from your battery when your quad is off.

Enough to drive ya nuts with a new quad . Don't have anything hooked to the battery. The clicking noise and the slow cranking of the start is what alarmed me. Trying to find a replacement battery online is laughable.

I agree. I would think the battery is part of your warranty. Iíd check before dishing cash out on a new one if thatís the case.

Yep. Definitely, I would take it right back to the dealer. Sound like a poor PDI job by them. No way you should have any issue on a new machine , it should all be covered under warranty whatever it is (most likely the batt).

I believe your machine has a 6 month warranty. Bring it back and have them take care of it.

aside from getting it replaced under warranty, reason it is tough to find batteries online is shipping is often a bit more than UPS or FeEx.

Local shops should be fairly competitive with battery prices. Even big box stores carry batteries. (Walmart, Costco, Fred Meyers), not to mention auto parts stores. Heck, even ACE hardware carries Interstate batteries.

One nice thing about buying local is that they often have already poured the acid into the battery for you. Although, the last battery I got from Walmart was a kit, I had to pour in the acid. Let it soak for a few hours and then slow charge it overnight.

Of course, for me, shipping to Alaska cost more than the battery, so buying local is always cheaper.

I have 2 750 kingquads. My wifes went through batteries like crazy. 1 every 2 years. The fix was an extra ground wire from the stator to the battery. I can't remember if I found the solution here or on another forum. It was some Suzuki tech who said that they did this on a regular basis when a bike didn't recharge the battery properly. My first solution was always to recharge and then buy another battery. But by have the second bike, (still on the original factory battery and identical use and maintenance), I could see the difference. Regardless, problem solved for me.
