fuel supply problem, could be fuel pump? or filter dirty

Sounds like a fuel system delivery issue! Have a professional clean the fuel system and clean and set the carb. A new or CLEAN AIR FILTER is required.

If the shocks are worn out, get off the machine and lift up on the back rack. This takes up the slop between the shifter box and the transmission, and usually allows me to shift. I also had an issue with the thin steel plate behind the shifter box. Got a crack in the top , so it was flexing, creating more slop. Welded it shut, good as new.

Have you checked the wiring on the relay all the way down to the frame and battery? Sometimes there is a hidden broken and exposed wire that is covered with dirt and makes an issue when it gets wet.

The 3000 mule I have worked on has a coil, wire which screws into the coil and spark plug boot.
Do you have power and ground connection at coil.
You said you replaced coil did the wire and spark plug boot get replaced also.
If there is any question about the connection between the coil, wire and boot you might try removing the coil, wire and boot from back cylinder and placing on front. Swap them and see if you loose spark on rear plug after swapping.
Just a thought.
