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 ).

08 ski-doo gtx 500ss lost power to one cylinder, lots of spark, plug dirty. Blown piston? Cause?

check it's getting fuel to that cylinder, if so would suspect piston ring or leaking valve. burning blue smoke from exhaust is a clue.

200 2002 ski doo 700 fill left crank case with 2 stroke oil so bad that when we started it bent A rod P

Oil does not go directly into the Crank, I am afraid you have (Dirty Carb) or Low Compression. What it sounds like is you HYDRO LOCKED your CYLINDER (not completely) and when you started it, it can not compress a liquid and BAM,,..,, Time for a new engine

I have a 2001 ski doo formula 380. It has little or no power.

Is it running on both cylinders or just one, if it's out on one cylinder, clean the carbs and replace the plugs and wires, wires are already bad on my 2009 gtx 550, so I just taped them with electrical tape as a temporary measure.

My 1980 ski doo citation has good spart and great compression and is getting fuel but still will not run it wont even fire even with starting fluid i think its timing is messed up so how would i fix this

The problem may or may not be timing. You say it's getting good spark but is it great? if the compression is as good as you say and your spark isn't strong it can be put out by strong comp. if it is timing i would get shop manuel for it. i can't find a micro phish on it so i'm not really sure where to tell you to start.
