Since it has a gas motor; it would have had a 6 volt generator and battery and wired + ground from the factory.

So help us out........
Is he using a 6 or 12 volt battery?
Does it still have the generator or has it been converted to a 12v alternator? How does he have it wired + or - ground.

If you really think something is draining the battery over night you do not have to wait for dark and start looking for hard to see sparks while taking a wire loose.
Take one of the battery cables loose. Install a test light between the battery post and the battery wire. If the light comes on you have a drain somewhere. If you remove the drain the light will go off.

Reason why I say use the shade or dust thing is, because that way you do not have the own any thing fancy to check for a drain and so simple even a child can do it and the cost is zero. One of them keep it simple stupid things. LOL Learned long ago one of he best test pieces of equipment you can own it your eyes and ears
