I hope you got this problem fixed, just happened to my predator, it was indeed the voltage regulator. I picked up a service manual that includes part numbers and installation procedures from for 15 bucks.

SOURCE: i took my 2003 polaris predator threw water and it

I would drain your carb float bowl to get it free of the water, or you could get some heet from wal-mart put in the fuel tank and it might clear it up. I just had a simular problem with my sportsman 500 except somehow my sparkplug cap wasn't pushed down all the way and water got in there and put a hairline crack in the sparkplug that I couldn't even see but it made it to where I could start it then after a min or two it cut out and wouldn't start back up untill the sparkplug cooled down. So it's possable it could be the sparkplug if you drain out the carb and its still happening. Hope this helped

Why is my 2004 polaris predator 500 shutting of while riding it

First be sure to check oil level if you haven't. Many have a low level shut off switch. If the level of oil gets below a certain point it can shut off. Just a thought.
