    Polaris MSX 150 question...battery won't stay charged.

    Hello Guys,

    Say I might have a MSX 150 coming in and the guy states the battery will not stay charged. I am thinking a bad voltage regulator?....can anyone give me some help?

    Thanks....

    I suppose it could be. I recall a recent thread that covered the voltage regulator module in the electrical box. I am not sure that those guys were experiencing problems with battery charging though. The battery not holding a charge could be something as simple as the battery being bad to the stator going bad. I am on my way out right now or I would try and pull the thread up for you but try a search on the site to find the recent thread on the voltage regulators. K447 and Xlint89 covered it completely with no questions left to be asked. In the end the guy did need a new voltage regulator as I remember.

    Sounds like the regulator to me, I have changed them before and its not the easiest/nicest job as its on the front of the engine and you need to get the intercooler out of the way to get access.
