    1996 780slx stalls

    Took the ski out today, running pretty good. The problem I had was when you get up on plane and are crusing, anywhere between 20-45 I am guessing, not wide open. It will quit instantly like you hit the kill switch. Does not slow up just quits. when you go to restart it fires up instantly like nothing is wrong. Any ideas???

    Check all elec connections first, including the kill switch. Make sure they're claen and tight.

    Take a look into the cyls and see if you notice any scoring on cyl walls.

    That's good.

    Check batt connections, ground to engine, kill switch not grounding out, plug boots, etc...

    Make sure the connectors are clean and tight as well. Someone posted a similar problem and found his ground connector was holding by 1 thread.

    Maybe ohm test the elec stator fro inside the elec box to make sure it's not failing.

    Check your terminal board for signs of corrosion.
