Zx9r starting issues :( help before the sunny days end!hah

Hi all I am the owner of a zx9r 1998 .
Few weeks ago I went on a awsome ride out on the bike doing some high speed and knee grinding. . I used the bike to work the following morning about 15 mile ride everything was spot on I worked my shift and when I came to go home the bike would not start :( . I traced it down to no spark at all . So I replaced the cdi unit and it started up and then I kept turning it off and on and it worked fine the following morning I have no spark again :(
Iv replaced the fuel pump relay and checked all the resistance of the coils bypassed the side stand switch and still no luck . Anyone have any ideas of what It could be ? .........
Any reply very much apreaciated :)

Check the usual stater regulator rectifier battery.... Then go over the wiring harness looking for exposed wires.... Sounds like wires touching?? Ur lucky not much electrical on that bike so happy hunting.

Check fuses and stuff... Iono good luck sir

With a multimeter check the big white ignition plug under the front of the tank, also while you have the tank off check the resistance through the kill switch.

For the ignition plug check this picture guide out.

Kill switch help.

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.

Time to test the cam position sensor, it's attached to the outer side of the number one header pipe. it has a grey plug on top of the cam cover about 6 inches away. 460 Ohms if I remember right but check the book.
