05 Polaris Predator 500

I am having trouble with a starting issuse on my predator 500. It is not getting spark and I followed it to the coil by hot wiring the kill switch and key switch to makesure non of them were bad. I am not getting power to the single white with blue stripe coil wire when cranking or not cranking the bike. I am just wondering if any body has any problems with the magnetos or coil on these bikes? Or can someone guide me in a direction I have a pretty good experience working on bikes but not with electric starts. Wiring diagram will be also nice if someone has a site to one I dont have a manual.

I found out that it will only get spark when you turn the key on and then crank it but only spark once. everytime the key is turned off then on and cranked it will get one spark. The switch in the trottle was doing this. I hooked the brown wires together and cut the black wire. It still dose not start after getting spark. It keeps jumping timing everytime i set the timing and try to start it and take it back apart then the timing is off.

i took it further apart and found out that two valves were bent. That takes care of the starting issue but then it jumping timing not sure. I am just gonna replace the cranks shafts, bottom timing chain gear and new chain to makesure everything is brand new.
