Default Stator, ignition coil, or C.D.I?????????

I was out riding my 01 polaris XC 600 and it started back firing and then died on me while riding on the trail. Found a no spark situation. I disconnected my kill switch and put different plugs in and she went again but for only about another 30 mins then I stopped on side of trail to wait for buddies to catch up and yup it just died again. This time no spark at all or very little spark, disconnected key switch and tried my buddies ignition coil and still nothing, we could not get spark on trail so towed out. Has we were in Swan River for the weekend I didnt have my book to test electrical. At the motel in the trailer working on the sled and checking spark again its back so i rode around for about 20 mins and all good. Picked up a multimeter and got the electrical spec off the computer to test resistance for if it happens again. Sunday we rode all day with no problems. Just looking to see what other people have to think what issue is. I am thinking more towards stator since I wasnt getting spark with my buddies ignition coil.

Any input would be awesome

If it was your stator you would not have been able to get it going again period no matter who's coil you had in it, and it would have ran like shit. I suspect that you had a bad ground or short. The first thing I would check is your ground wire for connectivity.

x2 on bad ground, or something shorting out.... i don't know if its an open system or closed system on those sleds.....

Electrical is frustrating.... good tool to have is a spark tester... they are cheap, and can diagnose a weak spark.

I agree with the wires, sounds like when your playing with them your getting it back. I have a 97 F3 that likes to mess around exactly like yours, something in the hood wires.

Go through everything first, but stator usually goes out right, cdi I have seen mess up and work again, but more a hot cold situation

I had a similar problem with my 98 700 and it turned out to be the CDI, but that was the Ducati ignition with the built in coil. Your CDI is the newer style with a separate coil. If you are looking to purchase one, it is the same CDI for 2000/2001 XC 600s, p/n 2201547. They should be cheap on e-bay.

When i was testing spark out it wasnt blue but i was pulling my plugs away from head to see how far the spark was jumping and it had a pretty big jump but not blue just a faint color. hoping this weekend it has no spark so i can test my stator and other electrical components with the trusty ohm meter. oh and yes that spark tester is an awesome tester i have one my self.
