Re: it keeps flashing volts.
Your Charging system is not working. You may need to replace the alternator. The only reason it runs when you are hooked to a charger is your battery is not holding a charge and the alternator is not producing the electricity needed to fire the spark plugs. When you hook up to charger, you now have the voltage necessary to fire the spark plugs.

You might check the battery charger.... Some of these smaller foreign built ATV's have a battery charger that comes with them. I am not sure what the real problem is tho... Does it crank at all? Does it produce a clicking sound instead of turning the engine over?
Hey Ccp.. A new battery and it did not help the cranking issue?? hhmm... PLEASE take the battery and have the CCA (Cold Cranking Amps) checked... just because its new and has voltage does not mean its a "good battery"... It takes AMPERAGE to crank and run your machine.. (*see 35 amp fast charge!!)..Autozone, O'reilly's, a battery shop can check the CCA... once you have MADE SURE the battery is good, then you can proceed to diagnosing the real issue...This is the procedure a professional mechanic takes..so do this first... once you have determined the battery is (good or you got a new one)..and ... once you have the machine running,,WITHOUT a charger hooked up.. time to check the output.. you should get 13.5+ volts at 3000+rpm.. if you are not getting 13.5+ volts, its time for electrical diagnosis...This manual should have all the electrical specifications needed to diagnose your issues...
