    Question Polaris Genisis, 2001, 1200cc. won't start

    My 2001 Genisis 1200 won't start. Beginning of season ran ok, then started shutting off without warning and would restart after considerable cranking then would go and do same thing again. now it will not start at all. Seems that I have weak spark at times and then none at other times. Have checked stator leads, read ok, primary side of coil reading (ohm's) are high, all over 1.0 instead of 0.3 as test instructions state. secondary side of coil to sparkplugs are all perfect readings. Does this mean I should replace coil?

    Fuel injected or carburetor engine?
