Default Snowmobile Electrical problem

I have a 94 ski-doo Mach 1 that starts in a pull or two when cold, runs and drives great. Here's the problem, it shut off on me one time last winter and wouldn't start back up for about an hour. And last weekend it started great drove it for 25-30 minutes and I shut it off, tried to start it back up about 10 minutes later and it just wouldn't fire up for anything. Usually once it is warm it fires right up with about 1/4 pull. About an hour later went out and primed it a few times like I normally do when it is cold and it fired right up. Sounds like maybe something elctrical is heating up and malfunctioning.

Any ideas? I am going to look through the wiring for corrosion I had a similar problem with my KLR 650 and it trurned out to be nothing more than corroded wiring.

Thanks in advance,
mike

It sounds like the ignition modual over heating. check to see if your voltage regulator is working, it might be running to many volts to the system.

I'm curious, what do your plugs look like? Reason being, if the carbs are out of adjustment or need a good cleaning, you can have issues similiar to this.

Sorry guys been away from the computer, it has started and ran fine since then. Plugs look good, I'm not sure how to check the voltage, I'll definetely figure it out though thanks for the advice. Got a new problem now, blew a hole through one of the pistons in the 1980 exciter I bought a month ago. Like a jackass I took the airbox out and didn't change the jet and leaned the damn thing out. Anyway like I said thanks for the help.
