Default 1999 Powder Special EFI wont start..

My dad's friend has a 99 powder special EFI and it won't start.
It has no spark, they have tried a new computer and still nothing.
We are leaning towards the stator, can anyone confirm what wires should have power and what ones don't.
The only one that has power currently is a Orange wire.

Thanks

Most likely the stator, these were notorous for failure on these sleds.

yellow to brown is your power off of the stator.

Yellow brown is the lighting coil... Has nothing to do with spark.
Call a cat dealership or stop in and get a photocopy of the electrical resistance checks.
You will need a DMM.
Usually an open circuit is the culprit.
Bypass all switches and check the easy stuff first.
We have replaced a stator and a crank on out 99 PS.
