well guys i had a epic fail at bigwoods the other week ok i came out this hole it was ovr my tires and i noticed my exhaust smoking then i got to smelling something that smelt like burnt wires i got off cut my brute off and then lookd down and the wires on my voltage regulator were smoking so i unhooked it fast like and i noticed i had no ignition checkd fuses found one blown replaced it crankd it back up and rode the rest of the day with the regulator unplugged cause it damaged my connector ....so my buddy was beggin me and beggin me to go ride sunday so i went to big woods and i still hadnt replaced my regulator yet so i get down there and i notice my 4wheel drive quit engaging then all of a sudden it started spitting and spurttering and it was like it was in lymph mode but the belt light wasnt on and then i stopped and she just cut off the battery was completely dead..... then i jumped it off in the swamp and it ran great for ab a 100 yards... i flipped the switch and it went into 4wd and all and then it started spitting and sputtering again and wouldnt run but ab 7mph and i had a another fail i was down there and i went to pull crank it and ab that time i yanked it i busted my a.. in a mudd hole and the cord broke so i was like sweet and then i looked under the seat and my fuse cover was gone i was like great ...its def time to go home so i lymphed it back to the truck imma repair the wires that burnt in the next couple of days and get a rectifier.... i just wanted to know would that voltage rectrifier cause my 4wd not to work and the spitting and sputtering cause i noticed once that battery got that little bit of charge it ran fine and all but once that charge was gone it started spitting and sputtering any answers will be greatly appreciated yall

it probally started spitting and sputtering because of the dead battery.with your voltage regulator disconnected the stator isnt charging the batery. its a fuel injected motor and has to have power to make it run for the fuel injectors, computer, ignition system and so on. same thing will happen to your truck if your alternator goes out itll run for a while on the battery but once its drained your truck will die.

i figured the 09 650i's were fuel injected sorry.

edit: i would assume a carbed stills needs power for the spark , and dont they have some type of cdi or something on them for the timing and rev limiter?

As far as I know..correct me if I'm wrong..only the 08 and up 750's are FI.
