    Polaris 700 SLH wont crank properly at all times weird issue

    I decided to take it out for one last spin this weekend and about an hour into riding it it just stopped... dead in the water. When i press the start button the starter clicks like the battery is dead. I pulled the battery and charged it... after it was charged up i reinstalled it and she fired right up... rode for less than 3 minutes and the battery was dead again. So i went in the garage and took a battery from my other ski where i know the battery is good and put it in... same thing... now the digital gauge is flashing like the battery is completely dead and the starter clicks and tries to crank but no go. I'm thinking there is some electrical problem but am completely stumped on where to begin. Any advice would be appreciated

    Start with the engine ground end of the black battery cable. Remove and clean all metal surfaces, reinstall.

    I recently posted a more complete description of what to check in another thread. Search should help you find it.

    My signature links are another useful info source.

    ill check that out ASAP, if that connection is solid what else could it be? It seemed to run flawlessly just not getting electrical power. and what was that other post titled. I'm new to the hulk sorry if these are stupid questions

    I would check the charging system. It sounds like the stator is no longer charging your battery.
