this weekend my outlaw decided to keep cutting out on me. would be running it, then just shut off like its loosing gas. i let it cool down a bit then it would start up again. run it for a bit then die. guessing its the coil or spark plug. Any ideas?

You might check to see if the fuel filter is plugged or the screen in the tank.  Also, you may want to be sure your vent isn't plugged (remove the cap and see if it fixes the problem).

Beyond that, if it were me, as soon as it quit and didn't start, I'd grab another spark plug, hook your plug wire to it, ground the spark plug and turn the engine over to see if it was sparking.  At least you could determine if it was a spark problem.

It's most likely the pulser  coil. ktm part # 59039034000 or Polaris part # 4011799

Although I really haven't had any issues with my CDI, I carry a spare "just in case".  You might see if someone around you will let you borrow it for testing purposes.  Or you could buy a cheap used one off Ebay and keep it in your toolbox just in case you need it later.
