Polaris 500 EFI Touring Offroad Vehicle User Manual

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.
NOTE: Power plug leads may need to be bent down so that the battery cover
can be installed.
NOTE: Battery charge can be maintained by using a Polaris Battery 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 137 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.
