    How do you know there's power to the coils? You should see 12V at the terminal with the orange wire when the ignition is on.

    Check the plug caps are firmly screwed into the HT leads. On an older bike it's a good idea to trim 1/4" off the end of the HT lead to give clean metal for the plug cap to screw into.

    What sequence of events led to this failure? i.e. have you been fiddling

    1) Bridge the sidestand cutoff switch.
    2) Bridge the clutch cutout switch.
    3) Come back here after you've done 1) and 2).

    Clutch/stand switches should kill the supply to the starter solenoid so it wouldn't spin over.

    Could you have damaged/trapped wires from the timing rotor up to the ECU?

    When/if you get a spark are the plug leads on correctly? Left coil cylinders 1 & 4, right coil cylinders 2 & 3

    Fastfitter is right, don't bother with that. I take it you've checked all the fuses?
