    why is my polaris slth running fine for a bit then dying out

    hi my name is kurt and im new to the forum. i have 2 polaris slth's one is all taking apart and i need cylinders and a stator and flywheel for if anyone has and is willing to sell. the other one runs and sounds fine at first then i put it oon the water and it rev's nice and goes about 50 to 55 and just dies out, then it will restart and run for a bit longer and do the same, after a few times of this it will not wanna start and when i do get it started it runs bad and only revs to 2500 to 3000 rpm befor bogging and dying. and help would be much appreciated

    Possibly stator going bad. CDI problem. Does it run fine again once it cools down?

    not really an accurate way there are test but you can never duplicate it like when it's under a load and hot . I have heard of some guys warming them up with a heat gun to see if they fail

    you need to open your elect box and post a pic of your cdi or post the part # on it so we can tell .
    The early versions where a problem not the updated ones
