Unhappy 2003 F5 No Spark Please Help

My F5 shut off last season on the trail just like I hit the kill switch. No spark. I towed it back and never was able to get it to spark. I have replaced the coil with a brand new one, I just picked up a used cdi from a reputable seller on ebay and still nothing. The stator was replaced 2 seasons ago with a brand new cat stator. Prior to this happening it seemed as though the sled was taking alot of pulls to start. It is carbed and I did clean and synchronize the carbs prior to this ride. I have checked all visible grounds, I have tried unplugging the plug at the base of the motor to eliminate kill and key switch. What else could this be. Did the stator fail again. when that went 2 seasons ago it threw a check engine light and limped me home.

Also unplug the throttle safety switch, hand warmers and thumb warmer. Check ground wire.
