2016 570 sportsman overcharging

Just got a 2016 Polaris Sportsman 570 Hunters addition.

After the battery wore down chasing a lighting problem I jumped it off with a small phone sized jump box. Ever since it has been overcharging the system under throttle. When it hits 15.8VDC the screen goes apeshit. The voltage reading is correct and it is over charging. I am very close to ordering a new rectifier/regulator, but wanted to throw this to y'all and see if there is anything else to look at. This bike is new to me so I will take all the advice I can get.

Thanks!

Check back and let us know what happens. I know sometimes those jump boxes send out more than 12 vlts which can burn some electrical parts up.

FINALLY got the Rectifier delivered and installed. the overcharging seems to have quit, but the screen still goes nuts when I rev the engine, even just a little bit... im thinking bad ground? 
 
Also I bought a new charger/maintainer specifically made for Motorcycle/ATV use, and it says the battery is bad, even though it cranks the bike... albeit slowly but it does start. 
 
Has anyone here seen a bad battery cause the screen to flicker and even restart (goes back to the scrolling "POLARIS")?
 
Sure hope It didnt fry something else, Ill bet it aint cheap...

Your battery could be starting to short out internally as well as could be bad in general. I have had batteries cause many weird problems in the past from cars to truck to atv's. So a new battery is cheap enough to buy to try.

I am thinking the same. I’ll get paid on Thursday and I’ll pick one up. Thanks!

If that don’t fix it I’ll start wire diving...lol

GOT IT FIXED!!!
 
Replaced the Battery, and disconnected the Winch Motor from the circuit. The Motor was shorted internally, causing all of the problems Ive been dealing with. Shorted out the Regulator, ruined the battery (it was the original Polaris battery) and was the culprit for the screen going crazy.
 
Got to ride the bike for the first time in MONTHS, and had a blast. 
 
Thanks, and keep on doing what you're doing here. There are those of us that place a high value and a forum like this, especially this one. Ill be on here as much as I can. FB can go get bent.
