Take out the spark plug ,put the cap back on it and rest it on the engine, crank it over to see if you have a spark.

Hey whats up? Try back probing your wires going to the CDI unit with a volt meter or continuity tester to make sure you do have any broken wires. Then check the stater make it is good. If sure how to check the starter take it a bike repair shop they should check it for free.. If that does work let me know and I will look further into it for you. Good Luck.

SOURCE: No spark
Check the side stand kill switch if your bike has one. It kills the engine so that you don’t start out with the side stand down. If broken or out of adjustment, it would kill the spark. Check for a broken wire at the side stand switch and coupler. Try moving the kill switch by hand. If that doesn’t work then wire a jumper around the switch to bypass it. Check the fuses. How good is the battery? Try a jump start from your car battery. Is the handlebar kill switch on? Check the operation of the ignition switch and all kill switches with a volt ohmmeter. Install new spark plug.
If that doesn't do it, check the wiring harness. Did a wire come unplugged? Are all wires clean and with solid connections? Any abraded or pinched wires? Is the bike in neutral and the neutral light is lit up? If no neutral light, check the neutral switch and neutral switch wire on center casing. If still no spark, get CDI system and coils checked at the dealers shop. You can screw up a CDI unit checking it yourself.
