Default 2010 m8 no spark

2010 m8 with 4000mi no spark. I have found some great info on here but I'm still stumped. Sled was running good before this happened, it was like someone was hitting.the kill switch. Kept happening more frequently til it would not start. So far I have disconected the key, kill switch and tail light. Still no spark. It did get driven with a broken pull start for 2 days prior but I find it hard to beleive that it messed up the stator. There was rope dust in there but nothing grenaded. I turned off the lights in the garage and pulled on it and all the lights come on. Does this mean my sled is making electicity? I also tested what I beleived to be the stator coil resistance and got 0 ohms for both. Anyone got any ideas?

There is a good chance that you shorted your stator by running it with the rope broke. Have you tried unplugging the emergency kill switch on the bars. If you have a simple issue it would be there. It sounds like you have no knowledge about a stator so it is hard to tell you how to test it. There are several different coils on the stator that provide power for different circuts. Each one has a specific ohm range that it needs to be with in. You would need to have the factors and wire colors to test it. First thing to do is to unplug your switch and the emergency switch, give it a try.

New stator installed, still no spark...lights light up when I pull on it, so its making electricity fine. It has 4 ignition coils, if one went out will the others work?

Maybe timing sensor? If that were bad would it cause no spark?

next thing to try would be wiring harness. check for shorts. had an 05 M6 that wouldl keep taking out stators, turns out it was bad wiring. also check your ground wire under coolant bottle.
