I'll take a guess here, coils? Check all connections, test the coils?

With a multimeter do a resistance check through the engine kill switch, it should be the same resistance as the meter probes shorted together, maybe +0.1 Ohms. If it's not then strip and clean.

The primary stick coil winding is about 1 Ohm, so if there is any resistance in the engine kill switch, most, or all the battery voltage will be dropped through it, leaving nothing for the coil to generate a spark with.

For Tech Questions Bike Model letters are more useful than saying the year, for uk owners anyway, as registration year is not always year of manufacturer model.
