It is possible, but depending the gauge of the cables there could be a voltage drop caused by the length of the cables, this may not charge the battery properly because of the voltage drop.

I have a 2012 Polaris sportsman 400 h.o. I have replaced the battery and it will not keep a charge I have replaced a few.

Check the Alternator for proper voltage output, I am sure it is the problem, also you can greatly extend the life of the battery by keeping a "Battery Tender" type charger hooked up when it is in storage.

What is the best way to winterize mule stored in a garage

There's a drain screw on the bowl of the carburetor - either run the gas out - or turn the valve to off and drain the gas in the carburetor. I also take the spark plug out and spray on top of the cylinder and all around - anything metal. GETSOME is a product out of Florida that actually works. Disconnect the battery and hook the battery up to a 2amp tender/not charger - you'll need the battery tender that keeps the voltage correct but doesn't over charge - reverse when the seasons change and you should be good to go -

Battery tender question

that usually means the battery is at a full charge and the tender automatically turns off to keep from damaging and over charging the battery. Or you dont have the tender connected directly to the battery.

Battery and charging issues. I have a 1995 Vmax and I can't seem to get more than two summers out of a battery and that is with a battery tender always hooked up when sitting in the garage, and minimal...

Hi, is the battery tender always turned on at the mains?, reason i ask a battery permenetly on charge will at some stage fail, the biggest problem with these chargers are that they are keeping the battery tempreture high, a factor in failure, more batterys fail through heat than the cold, the plates within the battery can become distorted, and will be visualy noticable when the case becomes distorted or swolen, a good battery will last 3' years with use however some will last alot longer, your charger may show a high percentage however if only 5 out of the 6 plates are working, when demand for starting is required the voltage will drop rapidly, you need to do a drop test on the battery, but my thoughts are the charging system is fine and the problem lies completely with battery, however running the machine with a discharged battery could cause dammage to the charging system

2005 Corvette stored in garage with no battery tender hooked up, now battery is dead. How do i gain access in the car to release the hood to hook up a charger?

Usually you can energize the electrical system by making a mini set of jumper cables using a lamp cord and alligator clips. attach one end to a battery and attach the ground to the starter housing or any metal bracket, the positive lead to the main terminal on the starter. (don't mix up the lead ends...mark them so you can identify them.) Do not try to start the car with this attached. light wire won't handle the amperage.

Storing 2006 HD 1200 XL Custom for the winter. I have it hooked up to battery tender. Periodically I will take it off the tender when indicator light turns green, indicating battery is fully charged. ...

yes, the charge will bleed off just a bit in two or three days, just enough to reset the battery tender. it shouldn't take but a few minutes before the battery is again "topped off" and the green light comes on. But keep in mind that even with a battery tender, age will eventually get to your battery and it'll go bad. The battery tender extends the life of a battery but it can't extend it forever.

Good Luck

I have a 1996 BMW1100 LT. I want to hook up a battery tender to it during the winter. I am asking how to hook the battery jumpers without taking off all the brackets, etc... Can that be done?

If you have a BMW style power outlet for accessories such as heated clothing you can use the battery tender to charge your battery through that connection. I have an '04 R1150RT which I've been charging this way since I bought it. It has a 15 amp fuse which is adequate for charging with a low amperage charger link the Battery Tender or Battery Tender JR. Don't use the connection to jump the battery as the starter will pull too much current through the 15 amp fuse. You can connect the SAE type Battery Tender leads to an SAE to BMW male outlet cable to make the connection. Alternately, you could wire a cable to the batter with an SAE connector on it and bring the SAE connector end out under the seat and plug it in that way. You can store the SAE end under the seat when not in use and not worry about it shorting out since the exposed metal end of the SAE connector is the ground connection.

Strting problem on my wind 125

what else could it be? I'm with stupida dead battery WILL NOT be recognized by a battery tender thats why the light wont come on. Are you trying to jump the bike using a car that is TURNED OFF? You can hook the 2 batteries together and that will help equalize your bike battery enough that the battery tender will recognize that you are indeed connecting it to a battery or you can buy a battery charger and charge it for 20 minutes (or barrow one) which will be more than enough for the battery tender to recognzie the battery. *edit I should mention that the reason a battery tender wont recognize a dead battery is it must see (feel) electricity from the battery. I dont know all the exact properties as in what votage it must see but if it doesnt see it it thinks its not a battery. A charger will try and charge it no matter what it may be. I mean you connect a charger to a metal bar and it will try to charge it. oh if you hook the two batteries together im not sure the bike will start though it may. I have never tried it with a bike but at work we connect two forklift batteries together for 30 minutes and that gives it enough of a charge for our battery tenders to recognize that its charging a battery.,
