I have a 99 MXZ 600 plain jane with no reverse that ran beautiful for the last 2500 miles untill yesterday. When I started it it ran for a minute and a half and died. It started right up one pull and I figured it was just cold. Then it ran for about 5 minutes and died. Again started up one pull. We took off and it would die once or twice each mile under any speed or throttle position. We still managed to put on around fifty miles. It really points to an electrical problem and not a fuel problem. All wiring is in good condition. I tried the dealer in Wilmington, VT and I would have been better off at the local hairdressers. I thought I'd ask here before just throwing a new brain and tether combo at it for around 300 bucks. Any insight would be much appreciated.
