Default 96 Polaris XLT 600 No Spark Need Ideas Fast!

OK Guys heres a stumper for ya

96 Polaris XLT, No Spark
Didnt have any time to work on it tonight, so I need some idea for tommorow. It has no spark at any cylinder.
Here is a history: It was on a ride when the chain snapped. The machine was towed back with no belt on. We fixed the chain today, and the engine would not start. I suck at electrical problems, so I really need some ideas. There is continuity through the keyed ignition, thats all I checked so far.
What do you guys think?

I have no idea about what the sleds have, but there should be a coil, if you have a dwell meter, test that. Its what gives the plugs there electricity. I woulndt suspect the coil, only because the coil in my 35 year old car still has dwell, and it hasnt run for 20 + years. However the wire could be disconceted! Im not shure if the sleds have coils or they run a coilless ignition, but try it!

Make sure the coil is grounded and that the plug wire connections aren't corroded... other than that I can't help you.

Sounds like you have a good old case of demons.

You will have to smoke them out. For best results try doing continual circles around the quad on your kx 125 with some of the good bubble gum scent flavor oil. Then have carl get on top of the quad and dance up and down like a monkey.

This does the trick every time. Take some pics for us too.

Rocky check the fuse if it has one it will cause the coil packs not to fire but it will turn over...

Well Rens idea didnt work. I couldnt find the damn oil

I DID however figure out the problem. Im an idiot.
There is a safety switch when the throttle is not attached, the ignition will not fire. Hence my problem :
