03 TrailBoss 330 ignition problem

Here it goes. I know the coil is good (new). I have reason to believe the CDI is good. (checked). I THINK the little switch by the flywheel (Name? Sort of like a "Hall-Effect" switch.) that signals the CDI when to fire the coil is good. Coil wire from CDI is always hot. Should it always be hot and if so what and how is the coil fired? (Got to either be a hot or a ground switching on and off to fire it and there is no ground. Or to be precise it is grounded all the time through the coil's frame. No seperate ground wire.) Thanks in advance for the help. This is for my 12 year-old son and I'm stumped on it.

P.S. No spark at all.

Thanks for the welcome Bruce. Any answers on whether that coil wire should be hot all the time? I am starting to think it might be the CDI after all since the coil is somehow getting 28 volts to it. (All the time which I still think is wrong because with only the hot wire and no negitive wire going to the coil the only way it can fire is if the hot goes dead at some point.)
