Have you already bypassed the TORS?

nope because it had been running fine for me before why would i start getting problems with it ?
and doesn't tors just keep your sled from going over 3000 rpm when somethings frozen on it like carbs or fuel injection

if the carb or throttle switch fails, there goes your spark. both are incorporated with the tors feature.

If you bypass it, this will help you to find out if it is the throttle switch or the carb sensor that is bad.

figured out that my coil pulse isn't working correctly that's why it doesn't always spark so I'm thinking a wire is shorting somewhere on the metal every now and then
