Hey, I have a 2008 outlaw 450 mxr, it runs like a champ for 5-10 minutes, but once it is hot it loses spark, and won't start again until its cooled off. I'm not 100% sure what the problem is but I suspect its the stator. Any advise, or help would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds to me like you are losing compression. Shouldn't the stator be constant?

i feel like a loss of compression would cause a loss of power before it dies, and it doesn't lose power, also why would, it lose compression and but then regain compression when cold, i though compression is higher hot...
apparently stator can have cracks that expand when hot, preventing spark.

do you know if the spark comes from the battery or the stator?
thanks.
