Have you tried checking for voltage at the coil and fuel pump to verify voltage? If the fuel pump is getting juice but the coil isn't I don't think it is a stator issue. Start chasing wires for shorts.

Green to brown should be about 16.5 ohms and green to black should be about 16.5 ohms. Is that what you checked on yours?

fuel pump is on a separate winding on the stator from the ignition. a bad stator could be causing his issue

It just happens. Not as often on these as it does on the older ones. These are high performance machines and the ignition portion has lots of strain on it. Over time the coating of the wire will break down and short out resulting in a meltdown. Likely nothing to do with your sled, but make sure grounds are all tight and clean and that should help.

hey i have a question, if i put underglow on my sled and spliced into head light. Would it fry my whole snowmobile. The servo went on it and i replaced that and it worked and then my motor blew and got that rebuilt, got 100 miles on it and it just died. Do you think everything electrical on it quit. I unpluged the under glow after the servo went and never pluged them back in. I hope i didnt fry my electric system.
