Battery Storage

Whenever the vehicle is not used for a period of three months or more,
remove the battery from the vehicle, ensure that it's fully charged, and
store it out of the sun in a cool, dry place. Check battery voltage each
month during storage and recharge as needed to maintain a full charge.
Tip: Power plug leads may need to be bent down so that the battery cover can
be installed.
Polaris recommends maintaining battery charge by using a Polaris Bat-
tery Tender charger or by charging about once a month to make up for
normal self-discharge. Battery Tender can be left connected during the
storage period, and will automatically charge the battery if the voltage
drops below a pre-determined point. See page 117 for the part numbers
of Polaris products.
Battery Fluid (Conventional Battery)
A poorly maintained battery will
deteriorate rapidly. Check the battery
fluid level often. Maintain the fluid
level between the upper and lower
level marks.
Add only distilled water. Tap water
contains minerals that are harmful to
a battery.
