700 Sportsman

I have a 2001 sportsman 700 twin come in to me.I am not real familiar with quads but said id look at it. Customer drove it off of the trailer and then later it would crank but no start. Brought into shop and found no spark. After some testing determined stator. Pulled side cover and found where wires attach to stator were burnt off. customer ordered new stator and I installed it. Still no spark. Customer got new rectifier and ignition coil module. Still no spark. I dont know where to turn next. Can anyone give me some advice?

If you're dealing with a 700 twin, it's at least a 2002 (first year). They came with a Ducati ignition (junk). Polaris sells an upgrade kit (comes with stator, coil, wiring, etc.), but it's not cheap(around $550).
