2008 teryx running horrible when hot

hey guys, my dad called me with some problems with his teryx he's had for a couple of months now. The problem started a few weeks ago after a long straight stretch of 50mph for about 15 min. The sxs started popping and slowing down. The speedo went down to zero but it would still keep a steady speed of about 30mph but speedo read zero. Shut the sxs off and wait a few minutes and it runs fine..

now After a bout another 15 minutes of riding, popping starts and speedo starts dropping down to zero with the sxs lossing power. I read somewhere about a battery problem that could cause this, and I know he has a winch, which strains the battery if used a lot. what do you guys think. I wish I was home to see the problem myself but im station down in GA and its in MI. Mechanics are terrible back home also and would charge an arm and a leg for just pulling it into there garage.
