What would make the bike not fire?

So, I just got a new engine. After plugging it all up it doesn't start. Hmmm... get to checking and there's absolutely zero spark. The coils have power to them, the pickup coil is working. SOMETHING is telling the bike not to fire. The only two safety features I know of is the clutch lever sensor and the kickstand sensor. Previously, I spliced the kickstand sensor wires and tied them together. That should be all that's needed to close the loop right? Well, just incase I spliced it back together...still nothing. The only other thing we (myself and my mechanic) can think of is the CDI box is broken.

Anyone else have any ideas? Something I'm missing? What else would make the bike not fire?

Re: What would make the bike not fire?

Yes, I know about the bank angle sensor. It's under the seat on the 929. It's working, because when unplugged it won't even allow the fuel pump to prime. We've tested that one. *sigh*

And yeah...we made sure the kill switch was turned on.

Re: What would make the bike not fire?

On the 954 there is a starter relay switch under the seat, I have to **** with mine for the bike to start once in a while, I hear the fuel pump and all but when I touch the starter nothing...

Re: What would make the bike not fire?

Probably a dumb question, but any MIL codes flashing?

Re: What would make the bike not fire?

Just the code for the airbox being sensor being off. (Got the airbox off the bike for testing purposes.)

I'm going to a friend's place tomorrow to borrow his CDI, kickstand and bank angle sensor. Hopefully it's one of them and I'll be able to fix this damn thing.
