    polaris slx 780 won't go over 3800 rpm

    I have a polaris slx 780 when you first take it out it runs fine for about 5min then it wont go over 3800 even with the gray wire from the cdi box disconnected and idea what the problem could be?

    Check your stator. (ohm test it)

    Then maybe try testing it after it acts up.

    Xlint I checked the stator and this is what I got.

    Red/Purple to Yellow= 0.7
    Red/Purple or Yellow to Black= open
    White/Yellow to Black= 210.6
    Blue/Red to Red/White= 86.6
    Red/White to Black= open
    Red/White to Green/Red= open

    Red white to green red should be 490 ohms.

    Double check that, and if open still, you need another stator.

    Unfortunately NEW are very hard/expensive to get. A good used one can be bought for around $100 and can be had pretty easily.

    I'd Try John at Rock County Jet Ski for good used parts.

    Just so you know, a 1994 or 1995 750 magneto/stator will work in a 780 too.
