Ok so my neighbors honda rancher aint charging. Checked with a multi meter to verify this after the battery died twice. lol Soo i got a manual for it, and im not afraid to tear into it BUT, does anyone got any ideas where to start? i checked fuses and for bare wires n prett much anything else that was easy to look for. Its a 94 or 95. any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. thanks much guys.

Possibly a bad voltage regulator. I would take an ohm test to make sure that's it.

You will disconnect the electrical connector going to the regulator and test it at the connector. The repair manual will tell you exactly how to test it and the ohm values.
