Dead Battery/

Recommended Posts

I just got my 1st snowmobile this year It's a 2005 Arctic Cat 4-stroke. I used it once around New years and tried to start it last week and the battery was dead.It sits outside in a trailer. I bought a 2 amp charger and the battery worked after a 10 hr charge.Is my battery bad or do you have to charge it before using it? I don't want to be stranded out on the ice. Any battery info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks DrJ.

I am not very familtiar with the cats but I would imaging the principle is going to be the same with one of my sleds.I have a 92 indy 500 sp efi sks. I found out from the start that if the sled sat for more than a couple weeks without running it,the battery was dead.just enough draw plus the cold weather that they went dead over a short time.Didn't make a difference on the brand of battery.Trust me I found out. Here is the two ideas that I have.Presuming your trailer is an enclosed one, Go the local parts store and buy yourself a battery maintainer.Mine is a 1 amp.You can either mount this in your trailer,One side goes to your outlet(110)and they other side to your battery.The other option is to take your battery out and put it on your maintainer in the house/garage till the next time you need it.I use mine on 2 motorcyle batteries and my boat batteries also.The cost on the one that I bought was 20 bucks.
