    Polaris SLXH runs on all 3 for a couple minutes then drops a cylinder

    I think it's a 98. It has the two piece seat. It has good compression and runs strong on all 3 for a couple minutes when you first hit the water. Then it drops to a two cylinder. I'm guessing its an electrical problem like coil, stator or cdi? The cdi is the non-updated version. Any guesses?

    thanks,

    Aaron

    my Guess is that it needs the updated CDI and Stator
