I just recently bought a brand new '09 teryx. I love it but I had to take it back for a battery replacement already. Seeems the brand new battery was a bad one. No big deal but it would be if I was in the field when it wouldn't start. I have always had ATVs and if I had a battery problem atleast I had a backup with the pull chord. Any way, my teryx has a stereo and it's great but my question is what is my best option for playing the stereo while the motor is not running. The dealer told me I could get one of those small battery jumpstarters and hook it up to my battery and this would keep the stereo running off of the power from the jumpstarter. Has anyone tried this or have a better affordable option, and does this even make sense?
The stock charging systems are junk and the stock battery is crap. If you are going to run a stereo or wench you need to upgrade the battery, do a dual battery or aftermarket charging system. I had to to run my all crap. I had this problem until I talked to Endi at sidebysidecustoms.
