2012 sportsman 500 HO no spark

Recently got out of shop after spending $700 on a new ignition. Rode fine for a week or so and was riding one day and cut off on me. Found the white wire coming from coil came unplugged. I plugged back in and still no fire. Checked spark plug checked fuses everything is checking out. Anyone have any suggestions?

According to my information, the ignition coil has a 3 pin plug - only one wire is white and it has a dark blue stripe on it

Need pictures, VIN would be helpful

Personally, if the repair only lasted a week, I would take it back to the repairer

The coil does not look right for a 2012 model - got the VIN of the vehicle?
