Include the spark plug boot on your grease list

Grease the ignition coil plugs, almost all the time it’s the ignition coil plugs getting wet. The ignition coil is located under the front left fender in the worst location ever so they get soaked if you go through puddles or even when you wash the machine it normally causes problems. I suggest completely replacing the spark plug boots, I always have some sort of trouble with the stock Polaris ones.

I have a scrambler 1k XP and i found that the injector wire had been pinched between the intake and the throttle body, seemingly from the factory. it would intermittently sputter and die when it got splashed. The last straw was when it blew the injector fuse. this also led to a inconsistent idle and running.

Probably not your issue, just goes to show that visual inspection is one of the best tests.

Good luck!
