What charges the battery on a Honda ATV?

An ATV uses what is called a stator system or magneto system to charge its battery. This is a fairly simple and robust system located on the inside of the ATV’s engine. Any time the engine is running, the stator is continuously generating an electric charge.

How can I tell if my stator is bad?

The most obvious symptoms of a bad motorcycle stator include no spark, weak spark, or intermittent spark (also known as misfiring). Hard starts and a poorly running engine can also be clues that your stator needs to be rebuilt or replaced.

How do I know if my ATV voltage regulator is bad?

The signs of a failing ATV voltage regulator include the following:

  1. Your ATV is overloaded with power: The AC energy that starts when you turn your ATV on goes straight through the voltage regulator.
  2. Your ATV doesn’t run as strongly: The ATV will become slower as you try to push it harder.

Will an ATV run with a bad stator?

How do I know if my ATV stator is bad?
