Reason I ask is, if it is, you're getting ready to try the warranty out on that battery.
The deal is, the deductible is $50 on the cat warranty - So, ask yourself are you comfortable sticking $50 into a battery that ,in quality alone, is just like the cheapest one Wal-Mart sells?
For a little extra, you can get an AGM Battery (look it up) that will last probably as long as you own the 4 wheeler.
I do know that if it drops down at start lower than 11 or 12 volt, it will VOLT and not start - On the 650H1, the trouble is, you don't come stock with a crank rope - my 700EFI does and they'll all start and run fine low but, you can't push it and boosting is usually not a great option... Slow charge it and see but, I'd lay odds that you're a few stops away from getting pulled out to go get a battery...
Save you some headache, go shopping now...
Orielly Auto has a good AGM that fits tight, in the 500, 650 and 700 works well... Wal-Mart is now stocking and selling them - take yours in to match up - Remember AGM...
And there is Always a bike place or online to get an Odesy brand - little more costly but all built nearly the same...
Hope you can get the issue resolved and there isn't a short... Likely it's just a weakening battery...
Hope this helps.
