i was out riding my sled friday night and saturday. friday it quit on me so i pulled it over and it started right back up. saturday i rode it and quit on me again and wouldn't start up i left it for 45 minutes and came back and started right back up. i was told it was probably a cdi box does that sound right?

I'll be curious as to what people guess here. I have a friend that has the same sled, and it has given us a similar problem when riding deeper powder. Not an issue all the time for his, though. We haven't really come up with anything on it yet. Good Luck, wish I could be some help.

my girlfriend had a similar problem with her sled, the sled wouuld run great, then about 20 mins later it would slowly lose power then eventually die, pull the cord and shed fire right up.

Ended up being the key, the two wires behind it were arching out, so i removed the key and it never had another problem.

there are some videos on youtube on how to check ones on a artic cat, first thing is finding out the stats for your stator then comparins to what you find , the videos are http://www.youtube.com/user/BlaineDP#p/u/10/XM3m9i6uqSw «-- 4 prong and http://www.youtube.com/user/BlaineDP#p/u/11/jbxhExP-2P0 «--- 3 prong
i have no clue if ur would test in same way but as long as you know what the specs for your stator should be

well i figured it out. my throttle position switch or whatever you want to call it that little button that sticks out when you open the throttle. i unplugged it and haven't been having any more problems with it quitting.
