I have changed the harness, plug, battery, and trying to figure out how to check the coil... An ideas on a cause? Can the CDI be checked?

there is one thing that can take the spark and you could boggle the brain till you find it ,and ...............it does not happen very often . I'm talking about the flywheel key ,if it has sheared ,even half way then there will be no spark. but I'd first confirm all the other things first.

The only way to test a cdi is to replace it with a known good one. They do go bad from time to time.

The stator is also a common culprit. There is a test procedure in the service manual. I don't remember exactly what it is anymore.

I am trying to find a way to test the stator. I have checked all others coil, battery, plug, and no luck. New CDI on the way.

is it no spark or a weak spark? if its weak try replacing your pick up coil, if not like cfm said replace cdi, take out the cdi box and smell it, if it smells like burnt plastic its done.

Last 2 times I lost spark it was a bad cdi.. When i had weak spark,or spark about every 3rd revolution of the motor it was a bad coil. So if you lost your spark completely it's probably a bad cdi.

Are you not getting any spark at all when holding the spark plug next to the frame?

Have you tested the kill switches? I've seen people beat their brains out, trying to figure out a problem like this, and it end up being a bad switch. If it has any aftermarket tether switches added, I'd test or temporarily disconnect that also.

I assume you’ve replaced the spark plug and plug wire and all grounds are good. Kill switch and safety switches would be next. Any output from the stator?

So the battery and starter work, but does the stator put out power? A used one off EBay is hardly reliable. Need to find which component isn’t working rather than throwing used parts at it. You’re just getting broke fast doing that.
