I agree with leaflawnandlimb, it's definately the coil. I just replaced one on my 14 Kaw for this exact same reason. Mine was $80.00 at the dealer. Just remove the shrouding from the engine and you will see the coil. The air gap is .004" or 10 mm for the new coil.

I tried to remember the air gap from memory, bad idea. My service manual says: .008" to .012"

To the original poster, How did you come to the conclusion that
it would not start due to no spark? I would hate for you to
waste money for no good reason. Even if you were buying the
coil from me, I would ask you why. I spend a lot of my time
talking people out of wasting money, that is probably why I
am broke, but really why do you think it is the coil?
