Question for Paul

3 posts in this topic

Paul (or anybody else that may know the answer), since I have seen you post a couple of times about ATV trail rides, thought you might know the answer to this I just aquired a 1994 Polaris 300 4-wheeler and it is in need of a new battery. I measured the battery and the "seat" that it sits in and went to a department store to buy a new one. The parts book at the store said to buy a certain one, but looking at the overall dimensions on the box it was a bit larger than the one that was in it. The one that they had that would fit in the bracket is a little shorter than the other one. My question is...Is there a difference in the voltages or cranking amps in these batteries? Am I not going to be happy with the results I get with the smaller battery? I can't imagine that it takes much to turn the starter over, I'm just concerned with it starting in the winter.

I know that I should probably bite the bullet and go to Interstate in Fargo and buy the $53.00 one but this one is half that price.

Thoughts anyone???

If it were me, I would by the $53.00 because that is cheap as ATV batteries go. I believe I spent almost $90.00 on my last battery. YOu want to make sure you have a SEALED battery. Not having a Sealed battery could cause you problems depending upon how you ride it. IF you are putting it on a trailer and riding to and from a fish house etc you maybe ok, but if you are evil keneival and you want to park it in the box of your pickup you will want a sealed battery so you don't corrode the seat of your pants.

Thanks for the input Paul. I posted this in the ATV users forum too and got pretty much the same answer.

Thanks again Paul.

      I have also heard the rumors that the DNR removed adult fish to plant into other lake years ago. I heard that a few locals had gone as far as to threaten to dynamite the Pike River Dam if that practice did not stop!  I have never heard any proof either way on that report. I assume that fry are planted into lakes that they cannot reproduce in to give fishermen in the area of those lakes the chance to fish for walleyes. Most lakes that the walleyes can reproduce in naturally usually do not require yearly planting to maintain a fishable walleye population. The DNR quit milking walleyes early because they had no demand for fry elsewhere in the state. They very seldom try to fill all of the egg batteries in the hatchery anyway. Cliff

        For this time of year you could use smaller dipseys if you don't have planer boards. Or what I do sometimes is have  longer rods towards the front of the boat and shorter rods towards the back, no dipseys or boards, and just troll that way
