TRX350 1986...heres my problem, an intermittent one. I ride the machine then suddenly the motor stops. Put it back in N, restart again then as soon as I try to reengage in first gear, motor stops again... or not??? ride it again for a bit (could be 30 seconds, a minute or forever, then stops again. The day after, could run it for 2 hours, no problem. OK for one week, then suddenly I'm back in mystery world! Is my fourtrax possessed? Should I have my fuel blessed by a priest?
Need your help!

Could be faulty CDI
Heat the CDI in an oven for at least 3 hours—no more than 200F. Connector side up. This gentle heating sometimes revives potted electronics. Let cool completely before you reinstall.
May revive it for a month, maybe not. Key is to try an isolate a problem component
