i noticed my battery has been just strong enough to crank the engine over on my 04 fourtrax 4x4 400. i put the meter to it and showed 11.50 at half throttle and went up to 11.80 when idle. what is the problem here? its a new gell battery by the way that was put on early this year.

Check wires and connections, how old is the battery? Used for plowing or high demands? Replaced a battery Sat., Sunday found disconnected (was loose connection, then not), smiled :smile cheap fix even with the new battery. Batteries do not last forever, up here with the plowing 2-3 years.
