king quad discharging battery
There appears to be a draw on the battery when the quad's key is in the off position.With the key in the OFF position, disconnect the neg. cable from the battery and connect the positive lead of a VOM to the neg post on the battery. Then, connect the Negative lead of the VOM to the battery end of the negative battery cable. Set the VOM's DC amperage to 5 amps and take a reading. If the VOM shows a current (amps) value you have a Negative draw. In other words, some component, ie stator, headlamp, taillamp, horn circuit, etc is providing an easier path back to ground potential. Current is leaking back to ground and discharging your battery. If your VOM shows a value on the display, with the VOM connected "in series" with the battery as described above, begin carefully disconnecting the various circuit connectors on your quad. Some of these circuits are: the main wiring harness that comes from the frame and connects to the motor, the connector on or near the handlebars that feed the headlamp, the connector near the rear of the quad the goes to the tail light, etc etc. If you see value on the display of the VOM drop significantly when you disconnect a wiring harness connector, you have found the circuit that is draining the battery. It could be as simple as replacing a burnt out and shorted tail light / brake light bulb or cleaning a coroded connector or straightening a bent tab in a connector.
