My wife's 94 377 Safari DLX was running great till we trailered it for 2 hours it took in a bit of salty slush through the belly vents. And when first started we might of had the grip and thumb warmers on (brain fart).Any thoughts on where I should start.

First idea that i have would be to check for a bad ignition switch or bad kill switch. I believe all you have to do is unplug them and check for spark....if you get spark when you unplug the kill switch, then its a bad kill switch and same goes for the key switch.

Polaris is my way out - Other people just use a door.

Thanks for your suggestions guys. I checked the ignition and kill switch and unplugged the thumb and grip warmers, cleaned and check all coil connections, gave it a boost and now she's doing wheelies. Is a '94 377 safari suppose to do wheelies? I mean real stand up sh!t. Bye for now going to go trailer out and find snow.

Oops! almost forgot does anyone know if it makes a difference to leave the grip and thumb warmers on when starting the sled? THX

Never has for me. It's been around 15 deg F the last two weeks, and my grip warmer switch hasn't moved from "high" in at least that long. My thumb warmer is non-existant though, a friend ripped it out with his thumb pulling the wires on accident once, and I havn't replaced it.

My sled starts pretty easily, grip warmers arn't effective till the rpms come up a little. Idle is set for 900rpm, and at that speed, the headlight is dim, and the grip warmers are barely working. But as soon as you give it gas, the light gets bright, and the warmers start to heat up.
