2004 Z400 with no spark!!

new CDI, new stator, new coil, new regulator! Still no spark! Is there a common ground to check? Wire that breaks? Thanks in advance

Bike sat for 3 weeks, jetted and popped the lid off and minutes into the drive it began to backfire like it was lean then died! Lean was not the issue, I lost spark. I have changed everything but the frame and engine and I have become so confident it will not fire that I am now holding it in my hand!

check the gap on the spark plug or replace it.

check the wire to see if there is a pinched or exposed wire

my quad also back fires but its because my fuel pump is bad. try this. take the plug out of the chamber put it on your engine block and pull start the engine if there is a spark your good if not try what ajl719 said check for a burnt out fuse.
