Sounds like you may have something more then a brokenline...... Oil injected or do you mix? Is the plug folwing? More info I may be of some help.

Even eminent chartered accountants are known, in their capacity as fishermen, blissfully to ignore differences between seven and ten inches, half a pound and two pounds, three fish and a dozen fish.

A little more background if you would. Have you checked the spark? pull the plug, put the wire on it and ground. Turn her over. Do you have spark? What color is it? Be careful when doing this it can and will knock you on your butt if you do it with a bare hand.

I'm thinking coil. Check your spark. If its a yellowish color I'd go with a coil. Turning on accessories takes power away from the coil. If the coil is weak the engine will die.

Put a coil in her and let me know. You should notice a difference in power to.... Is she a little dogish at high R's?

Try the coil. Take it with you they may have the equipment to check it. You sure don't want it breaking down on you when you're out there.

Let me know how you make out.

Sounds to me like your electrical system is simply overloaded. I had an old '91 Mach 1 that had no battery (not equipped with electric start) and when i had a heated visor plugged in, high beams on, hot grips and thumb warmer on, when i hit the brake, my headlight went out. With no battery in the sled, there's no reserve power for that quick demand when the brake light is on. The only way to fix this (as long as your stator is putting out full power) is to turn off some accesories, unless you can find a high-output stator for your sled. My old sled used to eat plugs, if i didn't have 6 spares in my pocket, i wouldn't make it home from an evening ride. Check the spark plug gap before you put them in, almost all NGK plugs were gapped too wide, tightening the gap to the small side of the manufacturers tolerance (0.018" in my case) really helped me. Last thing, if you happen to be running the standard NGK B9ES or BR9ES plug, try the BR9EYA, its the same plug, but with a small groove cut in the electrode that really helps preventing fouling. They're less than $1 more per plug usually, and in my case it tripled the mileage i got from each plug. Hope this helps.
A bad day of fishing beats anything else I'd be doing today.....
