besides the obvious like key switch is on, kill switch is up, does the sled happen to have a safety tether? cycle the switches a few times and recheck spark.

i have experienced a few cases where the stators just die for no apparent reason, not unlike your situation.

any signs of rodent activity? they like to chew on the wires for some reason. check the wire connection on the carbs as well.

by pass the tors switch for testing purposes only. unplug the bullet connectors leading to the carbs from the main harness and plug them back into themselves.

from there, you need to test the stator.
