Bad Battery????

Finally took my new to me 700 out for a weekend ride and it ran great all weekend. However when I got home I washed the quad fired it up and rode it to my barn to wipe it down with armor all. After I finished detailing it I went to fire it back up and all it did was make clicking noises. I put the battery on a charger and said it was down to 50% so i charged it up and it still would not start. At this point i pull started it with my other bike and it fired right up but then backfired ran rough and stalled and again would not re-start and just clicked. I am thinking my battery went bad because I had this happen once on my street bike and it did the exact same thing. Anybody have a similar experience??

The ECM is the only plug that is not waterproof. If you have a 700xx service manual the page 6-56,6-57. If you don't then pull the tank cover/nose peice off.Then remove the front lights. Then stood at the front of the xx , its the plug with the most wires on the right .You may have got some water in the plug connection.
I'll post the pages , if needed.

Thanks Baxter

I will have to try that although I am really hoping its the battery. When I turn the key on all the dash lights come on as normal but when I flip the headlights on everything dies. I will check that connector tonight though just to be sure.

NVERL8,
I had the same thing on my 2005 Grizzly this morning when I was going ride. Just a click and that was it. I had it on the Battery Tender and the indication was that it was fully charged. After that, I removed it and took it to the motorcycle shop. The same indication, "fully charged". The kid put a load on it and the indication was it was completely dead. I really expected this to happen sooner-or-later. The battery is 7 years old and the new battery corrected the problem. I'm glad this didn't happen during my ride.

My original battery died within 3 years of ownership. I'm not sure the replacement will last this year.

well its pretty easy to know if its the battery. hook it up to your car with some jumper cables, and if it starts right up, you know it was your battery. Mine is almost 3 years old. I never used a tender, but if i don't ride it for more than a couple months, the battery gets low and i have to jump start it. it also starts a little harder now i think mostly due to the 290 web cam though. I will be getting a better battery when its time to replace it.

I didnt try to jump it with my car but I did try to jump it using the boost setting on my battery charger and it would not start, however my charger is supposed to automatically shut off when "boosting" if it detects a problem so who knows that might be why it didnt start with the charger on the jump setting. Hopefully my battery will be here friday so I can find out then.

It sounds like the battery but check the earth connection to the frame on the left side near the airbox.

Easy way to see if the battery is screwed . start her up and at idle pull the the temp switch connector on the thermostat off. If the motor dies then it's the battery.
