I have a 09 teryx and I am having some issues. First off I installed a voltage gauge to watch my volatage and running during the day it is around 14 volts. But at night with the hids on it drops to 12.5 volts and if the fan comes on it drops to 11 volts. It just started this last weekend and when it drops that low it wants to die. I have a red top optima battery installed. I am thinking it is a stator problem and my teryx is still under warranty. Any thoughts would be nice. Thanks Austin

How big of a battery is that?

Could be you just have too much draw for the system

Its a full size batt. 800 cold cranking and a 1000 cranking amps. Also how much is too much draw for the system. I dont have a radio or any thing that draws more power exp the hids. I do have a muzzy dugi tune but i dont think it draws much. Any other ideas why it might be doing this would be great to know. Thanks again Austin

that is normal, at night with your lights on and your stator trying to charge that big of a battery its at its limits(stator) mine does the same thing. I just put a bigger stator on and now at idle at night it stays around 12-12.5 and when the fan kicks on it goes to 10.5 to 11 but the difference is with the bigger stator when I start moving it goes back up to 14-14.5 where as before the stock stator stayed down low at all times at night.

which stator did you put on? how long have you had it on?

That big of a battery is a accessory in itself, I always suggest the smallest battery that will start it as long as you have constant draw accessories like lights.

Winches sometimes need bigger batteries.

If that is all you have I would simply put a smaller battery in there so the system could could keep up better.

The problem with the stock batt is it will work good for a while then it goes dead. I do have a 4500 lb winch and also have a 40" e-seris light bar. I dont run the light bar at all times but when i do i shut off the headlights and it runs ok if im moving. The main issue is when im in traffic or someone is stuck. I am thinking about a isolator setup but not sure if that will help. Thanks again for ur input on my issue.

Buy New Hi Power 450W Stator/regulator KIT Kawasaki 750 Teryx (08-ON) TERYX 750 4X4 / LE (08)


It by passes all the stock wiring. wires come out the side cover and go stright to the battery. I had alot of questions and Kyle there worked through everything for me. I put the crank sensor on backwards(duh) and it wouldnt start, Im on the east coast and they are on the west, after I got home he stayed on the phone with me for hours helping figure it out over the phone. great company and he knows his stuff.

one thing I did learn to is I put my regulator under the seat in front of the battery on the side wall and the extra wire I wrapped back and forth a few times and zip tied them tight to the main wiring harness and they over heated and melted together. but the extra wire out and put new end on and its running like a dream.

I think the stator will help. As far as the optima battery they don't like to be ran down. To get them back to full charge you have to trickle charge them. I work at a mine and most of our trucks have them and when they leave lights on and run the battery down we replace the battery and recharge the old on
