    Battery on Ski Doo Rotax 380

    I took a look at my sled the other day and was able to remove the voltage regulator. It was hard to do because it was under part of the engine and I had to reach my hands and wrench around the exhaust pipe to get at it but I managed to get it removed. I haven't ordered anything yet but it looks like this will cost me anywhere from $30 to $100 dollars.

    I will try to find an OEM or spx brand voltage regulator. I may post later asking about compatibility. Thanks to everybody for the help.

    Howdy, My name is Tanner and I am from Duluth Minnesota U.S.A. I have been snowmobiling for only about 2 years, so I am just a newbie when it comes to everything. My sled is a 1995 Ski Doo Rotax 380 that was given to me by a friend and it is in excellent condition. I have asked one question on here so far and am very grateful for the patience and helpful information from moderators and other experts on this site. Have a good day

    Battery on Ski Doo Rotax 380

    I tested the headlight and tail light connections with the engine running and my multimeter set to AC. Idling the voltage was around 15 or 20, and when I revved the engine I saw the voltage creep up to 32 volts. I looked and both bulbs are burned out. Is this the type of regulator I am looking for to replace it? http://www.snowparthub.com/01_154_16_Sports_Parts_Universal_Regulator_Rectifier?src=Google&gclid=CjwKEAjw85DIBRCy2aT0hPmS1jkSJAC1m9UvjqArlWsyjEc3S2Tfhdfw5UTe3SJrZ0wyEE_0LGTGnRoCpwDw_wcB

    Thank you! Today I did some testing with my multimeter and I discovered that the hand warmers work only on the low setting, and the thumb warmer gets too hot and starts smoking no matter what setting it is on. The lights still do not work, and the battery does not charge while the engine is running. If this information helps troubleshoot, or if anybody has any more ideas, that would be awesome. Thank you all very much, Tanner

    One more newbie question: Where is the stator on the sled? I know how to test it but I am not sure where to find it. I know every sled is different, so if I could get a general idea that would be great. Thanks, Tanner

    I will look into diagnosing this further and buy the proper parts if needed. Thank you guys for the help

    Thanks for the information. I would like to get a second opinion before I buy anything, but would you happen to know if this stator I found would work with my 1995 rotax? http://www.ebay.com/itm/SKIDOO-ROTAX-BOMBARDIER-TYPE467-PARTS-STATOR-/222226314785?_trksid=p2385738.m2548.l4275 Thank you
  9. Hi, I have a 1995 Ski Doo Rotax 380 and it runs fine, but the battery does not charge while it is running and the lights, hand warmers, etc. do not work either. I do not know a lot about snowmobile engines, so I am not sure how to troubleshoot this issue. I also am not sure if the battery is 6 volts or 12 volts. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Tanner
