300ex I lost all power

I have a problem losing electrical power then it magicaly comes back. My daughter rode for about 20-30 mins and her quad just kinda died. The starter would not work the solenoid doesnt click, it would not pull start, so I am guessing no power to the plug.
The same problem happened yesterday and we towed it back in and I went through the connections checking them today and could not find anything wrong. Then after putting a different fuse in it started working fine. I figured it was the fuse, but after it quite again I checked the fuse and it was fine again?
If the stator gets hot could it go to ground and cause everything else to go also? I also cant get my nuetral and reverse lights working, I know the bulbs are good. I get ground on the nuetral, but not the reverse checking at the case. Sorry for the long post but I dont know if all this is related. Thanks for any and all help.

I can jump across the terminals on solenoid and I still dont get power to to the plug.

The solenoid doesn't have anything to do with getting power to the sparkplug. The solenoid is just a relay that sends battery power to the starter when the start button is pushed.

I dont understand what the stater does, is it like a alternator?
Yes, the stator is similar to an alternator. The stator is actually a generator that generates power for the charging system. Since a generator generates AC voltage, the power is sent to a regulator/ rectifier where the power is rectified to DC and regulated to the proper voltage.
