Good day,
I am having an issue with my 2013 Arctic Cat 550 TRV. I'm on my third or fourth battery in 5 years. When I turn the key on, the battery drops to 8.5 volts and stays there. When I turn the key off goes back to over 12 volts. Any ideas where I should start? Thanks in advance.

A bad battery can still show 12v when its just sitting. When you put it under load it should not drop
much, maybe to high 11s at most. Each cell holds 2 volts. Your battery is indicating it has 2 bad
cells. Start with a new good quality battery and try again. By using a multimeter you should be able
pinpoint any drains.

You need to check the output of the Stator, and VR……are you keeping it on a battery tender ?
