2006 sportsman 500 X2 no spark

Hi, i have a Sportsman 500 X2 that has no spark. I've done all the tests from ohm testing the coil,new stator,coil and module which i just did today. By the flow chart in the polaris manual everything was good. I have power to the coil, but nothing from the module that is supposed to collaspe the coil field to make it spark. I have an rpm reading on the cluster during cranking telling me it sees the pick-up coil. I even switched the entire wiring harness from a running machine!!!! Does anyone have any inside polaris knowledge? Thank You for looking!!!!

Sounds like you have it narrowed down to a bad module; do you have a good one to swap with to see if that's the problem? Also I hate to bring it up, because it sounds like you have checked everything you needed to, but have you checked to make sure the throttle cable doesn't have too much slack in it? Too much slack and the safety switch will kill the spark, thinking you have a stuck throttle. <ducks from tossed beer bottle> Just making sure you haven't missed something simple; I know I do sometimes.

Thanks, yes i've checked the throttle cable. I even did the ignition switch test,cutting the black wire. I got the new module yesterday from the dealer. Still no spark. I don't know what else to check. Thanks for the help!!!
