2001 Arctic Cat 400 4x4 Coil Problems

I have a 2001 Arctic Cat 400 4x4 4-wheeler. The problem I am having is when I start it, it will run a few minutes and then it dies. When it cools down it will restart and run fine. Does anyone know if the coil would cause this problem or if it might be something else ? Thank You in advance for any help.

Have you confirmed that you are loosing spark? Running just a few minutes makes me first think of a fuel problem. It could be a coil going bad but I don't think the engine would get hot enough in just a couple minutes to cause a failing coil to quit.

Welcome to the forums. Does your four wheeler have a fuel pump? If electric, it could be failing. Also, check the gas cap by running with the cap loose. If it runs, then dies shortly after you tighten the cap, the cap is causing a vacuum in the tank. In that case the cap needs to be cleaned or replaced.
