ATV batteries, especially when not used for long periods of time, have a tendency of becoming completely dead. So it is important to be able to effectively recharge them. This process, with the correct tools, is extremely simple, and can be done by nearly anyone.

Step 1

Push the ATV near a power outlet.

Step 2

Use a socket wrench to remove the bolts securing the ATV's seat. Then remove the seat by sliding it backwards and pulling it up.

Step 3

Remove the battery mount covers on the ATV's battery, and place the corresponding charge clamps from a standard auto battery charger on the mounts. Make sure that positive and negative are matched up correctly before continuing.

Step 4

Plug in the charger to a power outlet, and set the charger to the 4-volt output setting.

Step 5

Allow the battery to charge for 45 minutes.

Step 6

Unplug the battery charger and remove the charge clamps from the ATV's battery mounts.
