In the 96, bypassing the TSS is not as simple as just unplugging a cable. You have to actually install a jumper plug. These were originally included in the toolkit, but often dissappear over the years. The New style of TSS acts by grounding the coil to kill the sled, so when unplugged, there is no path to ground, so the TSS is disabled. On your sled, however, a continuous circuit has to be made for the sled to run. This circuit includes the Throttle Switch, kill switch, ignition switch, and Magnetic switches on the carbs (if your model has them) If any one of these is bad it will cause the circuit to break, and the sled will kill. to test these, you just bypass each with a jumper one at a time. Your problem sounds like it could just be your throttle cable tension is mis-adjusted.
