I had the same issue on 2001 rancher es. Turned out to be the stator.  If the head lights flicker when running, the stator is starting to fail. Mine was over charging the battery and frying the battery.

Looking for some help with my 2015 Honda foreman . Had it since 2017 and changed out the battery in 2018 . Now having battery issues with the battery I installed last year . Do these things have to be on a trickle charger all the time ? I use mine almost every day ! My 2002 Foreman had the same battery for 12 years ! What do I need to do ?

 I bolted a 2x6 to the plastic trunk in front. Then you can add some forks to hold the auger on the front of the machine. Mrt.

I've got a 2016 570 and have been thinking about WHEN is the battery going to die or where is the most important. I'm on Bago and the Bay. I picked it up Halloween 2016 NO issue with battery yet. Last year on Bago I did have a starting issue with a fuse I think I would need to double check this. Called my dealer and they knew of this issue and changed them out for free! I've always from day one had the trickle charger connected!!!! The spot they have battery seems a little better with mine although I wouldn't want to jump or replace it .My ? and I've looked on YouTube is how to carry and what to use for a Jiffy 10" propane auger? Also any ideas on moving battery? Thanks all!

Stay on top! Wj

Stopped by the dealer. They are going to drop a battery in for me. I am going to bring it back after the gun season and get the rest of the annual oil change /check up done. When I told the counter guy that the battery is in a ridiculous spot he didn't necessarily agree with me. When the mechanic helped me unload the dead ATV he brought it up and said that the engineer that did this should be shot. I am going to have some leads put in so I can jump it without having to lay in a foot of slush, on the ice. Mrt.

I have the same issue with my Bombardier Outlander 400. Battery is mounted under the rear cargo shelf. Took two of us to remove it and again to install the new one. I went with an AGM again because of it’s durability and no need for service. The design location of the battery leaves a lot to be desired.

CF, 

Have you ever met an engineer? 

Reminds me of my cousin, he used to work at an independent auto shop.

They had a Toyota van come in for an oil change.

They had to pull motor mounts and lift the engine TO CHANGE THE OIL!

Also, g/f has a Fusion. You have to remove the wheel wells to change the headlights. 

Are you kidding me?
