Polaris Sawtooth 6v to coil no spark

So my 2006 Polaris sawtooth 200 is having a spark issue.

It will run and then after running for 10 min it will die and have no spark. When it has no spark it is getting only 6v to coil. Then after a little cooling off, it will have spark. It is having 12v to coil when sparking. How can I find out why it goes to 6v when heated up instead of 12v.? What can I Test?

Just shooting from the cuff here..... a spark coil doesn't usually have the full battery voltage on it. A typical two wire coil will only have 6v and under on it. Completely different If it's an electronic spark module.

On edit:
I see it has a DC CDI module. There would probably be 12v to that.
Does that have a part number on it ? I'm still looking for a wiring diagram.

Yes.... although I don't know if it will help. Those CDI boxes do go bad.

I cannot find any free wiring diagrams. They are all "pay-for-instant-download".

Thanks. Iíll keep looking for it. I found online how to test some stuff. I really hope itís not the CDI.

Is there a volatile regulator or a relay that could be bad?

fixed it

I bought the service manual. Tested everything and turns out my stator was bad along with my pulse coil. I changed those and noticed my cdi was constantly putting out 6v to the ignition coil. So I bought a cdi. Since the voltage regulator was cheap I bought one of those too. I put it all on and pressed start and it works perfectly.

After reading the Sawtooth and the Phoenix service manual it seemed that the cdi for each was the same...just a different part number. The Sawtooth CDI was $120 and the Phoenix CDI was $60. I took a chance and bought the Phoenix CDI and it works perfectly. Even seems to have more power!!! Spins out now and it never did before.
