Its continuously clicking and not wanting to turn over. All the fuses are good and we are on our second battery. The charger also says the battery now only has 10%. As soon as we put a battery in and try to start it it drains the battery. Seems like it's not getting enough fuel maybe
Always have a problem keeping charge on batteries. I need it to work to get it on the trailer tomorrow at least or I might lose the sale

Do you have a multi-meter (volt meter) ?

Ask Your Own Motorcycle Question
Motorcycle Mechanic: Kenny O., Motorcycle, ATV, Mules, Side by Side's Product Specialist. All Brands replied 2 years ago

OK good, lets start here, measure battery voltage

  1. Measure voltage with everything hooked up (key off)
  2. Measure voltage, Key on (observe voltage drop)
  3. While observing the meter voltage, they starting the unit and check the voltage drop

Make sure you write it down !

It has been sitting always for long periods of time and we have to charge the battery or jump it to start now it just won't start at all. Miles are 1611 can't recall the hours

I dont know what to tell you except I guess I'm sorry for keeping you up
Motorcycle Mechanic: Kenny O., Motorcycle, ATV, Mules, Side by Side's Product Specialist. All Brands replied 2 years ago

OK, so what we are looking for is measuring the voltage with everything off, it should be over 12 VDC, with a decent charged battery about 12.6 VDC, then with everything off and you just turn the key on you might see maybe .3-.6 voltage drop, then when you try to start the engine if the voltage drops below 10.0 VDC the battery needs replacing. Based on everything I got from you its pointing at the battery, do you know the type of the battery charger hes using ? I'm in California,

It's a lawn mower battery from Walmart and a regular battery charger from 2amps to 10 amps
Motorcycle Mechanic: Kenny O., Motorcycle, ATV, Mules, Side by Side's Product Specialist. All Brands replied 2 years ago

Walmart batteries are really bad, make sure that the charger is on the 10 amp, if its been sitting then likely its sulfated, the higher amperage will sometimes bring them back., I'm going to look up the size battery that Yamaha requires. I will be back

Motorcycle Mechanic: Kenny O., Motorcycle, ATV, Mules, Side by Side's Product Specialist. All Brands replied 2 years ago

That's a 35ah battery, that should be on 10 amps for at least 4-5 hours and then you can back it down to 2 amp,

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
We have a 12 volt ever start battery same as our other machine and that one has no issues. I will charge it at 10 amps till I get up and keep my friends nerd crossed. What if it still doesn't work?
Motorcycle Mechanic: Kenny O., Motorcycle, ATV, Mules, Side by Side's Product Specialist. All Brands replied 2 years ago

Make sure that he checks all the connections at the battery (tight and clean) and I don't like recommend this but if he has to he can jump it with one of your cars however (DO NOT START THE CAR WHEN JUMPING IT) you can use the car battery as a booster, but running the car while jumping it can damage the electrics.

Tell him to hook up the positive to both batteries first and then the negative cable on the Rhino and then connect it to the car last, then try starting the Rhino.

Felicia!
And thanks for your help!
So much!!!!
Motorcycle Mechanic: Kenny O., Motorcycle, ATV, Mules, Side by Side's Product Specialist. All Brands replied 2 years ago

Just make sure that if he's going to use the car, just be careful and to make good positive connections with the jumpers and don't make sparks. Like I said earlier its all pointing at the battery, so if this doesn't work go get a battery in the morning and that will likely fix your problem. If not get back to me in the morning and we'll keep going,

Thanks Felicia, good luck and hope your sale goes threw !

Goodnight !
