I need help identifying a problem with no spark on a Polaris Sportsman 500(1999). The stator tested out correctly so I've moved past that, however, I'm not sure where to go next. I understand that the issue could be the CDI, coil, or safety switches but I do not know how to elimiate each of these and in what order I should proceed. Thanks in advance for taking the time to assist me.

I should add that I received this four wheeler after it had been sitting for quite awhile. The first thing I had to do was open up and clean out the handlebar starter switch, on/off, light switch as it was badly corroded. The starter solenoid was poorly grounded and that was corrected. The starter was completely corroded and that was fixed and now works properly.

If there was corrosion on the switches, there might be some on the coil. Take a volt meter and see if it's getting power to the coil.
