Well, you’re throwing parts at the problem. You need to do some actual troubleshooting. Was the bike running normally before you did liposuction on it?

Refer to the shop manual. Start by checking the pickup coil from its connector, then check it from the connector to the ignition box (it’s not actually a CDI, which was on the previous generation). Make sure you have power to the ignition box. A common problem is that either the clutch switch or kickstand switch is faulted open, or disconnected.

How do you know the new ignition box and coil are good? Did they come off a running bike?

New coil and ignition module? That’s expensive. How are you checking for spark? Are you sure the clutch switch and kickstand switch are working?

Message #5 didn’t make sense. Slow down and use some punctuation. You must give a precise description of what you did.

And how did you make sure the clutch switch and kickstand switch are working?

The neutral connector should ground when the bike is in neutral, but rather than grounding the wire, make sure the switch works correctly and re-connect it. The kickstand switch does not go to ground, it completes a circuit, so you should jumper from one side of the connector to the other side.

I don’t have the wiring diagram on front of me, so refer to the diagram in the manual. After bypassing the diodes and interlocks, do you have power to the correct pin to the ignition module?
