95 ZR580 no spark

on my sons 95 ZR580 carb, it does not have spark when all connections are made as stock, when I unplug and turn the four prong connector coming out of the Stator, I can run the sled fine. This would seem to isolate the problem to the wiring harness and Tss, right? what should I be checking next.

Unplug the tss at the handlebars and insert the jumper. If it runs and starts then you know it is in the kill switch or the tss. If it is up there you may need bushings or take apart the kill switch and clean up the contacts. If it still does not start take the wires off the key switch and jump those. if still a no start you have a broken wire in the harness or a dead short in the harness. On a closed ignition system you have to complete the circuit.
