Remove both sparkplugs from engine. Plug them back in the sparkplug cables and let them rest on the engine.
Make sure your battery is well charged.
Check for sparks while kick-starting...
Interchange the sparkplugs in the cables:
-Same plug give sparks: replace the spark plugs.
-Same side of engine sparks: interchange the low-voltage connector at the ignition coils.
Give it a try:
Same engine side sparks: Replace the defective ignition coil.
Other side of the engine sparks: Check the circuit harness for loose connectors, and/or Clean-replace the breaker points ( left side of the engine carter ).

SOURCE: My yamaha raptor has power,
Check the compression, pull the spark plugs one at a time if more then one. If you don't have a compression gauge, you can put your figure over the spark plug hole, be mindful that before it blows it's going to **** so make sure that you don't hurt yourself leave a little gap so your figure doesn't suction down to tight. If your getting compression it should **** and blow pretty hard. If it seems to have good pressure and suction. You might need to check your timing, also make sure that you can feel air moving out the exhaust, might not be able to with the pipes on it but if it won't start and your getting everything else it needs to run gas,spark, etc. It has to almost be timing or compression.
