Hi, guys i was riding my 2002 honda rancher 350 2x4 ES all weekend and it was running great. At the end of our trip we were on a small trail just riding around and my atv just lost power completely. I went to start it and the battery went dead. So i tried to pull start it and that didnt work. So i let it sit for a couple minutes and then it fired right up using the electric start which was really weird. So then it was running fine....when i got home it did the same thing..lost power and then it would only start with the pull start. I charged the battery and it seems that my battery keeps getting drained out. When i got it going again with the pull start it ran fine until i went to put it in my shed and then my digital display went blank but the atv was still running and i couldnt change gears the neutral light flashed on and off a little. I have no idea what is wrong with it. If you guys could help me out that would be awesome. sorry i wrote so much
Thanks, Any help is appreciated

you need to make sure the voltage is a min. of 14.5 when the engine is running , if not the rectifier is probably the problem this can also cause the unit to quit , due to a lack of voltage if your electric shift continues to give trouble , you can order a bolt on hand or foot shifter for your es at
go to and view his products and see if they can help. He can also tell you how to fix stuff too
