2005 Honda TRX 450r won't start

My Honda just died on me in my last race in Baja. I replace the CDI box, coil, spark plug cable and new spark plug. The only thing that starts are the lights when kick start it. I still have no spark to my engine. What else could be the problem?

Check all your connections make sure you didn't loose a connection somewhere also check that aftermarket kill switch you put on they are notorious for playing out.

I've checked almost all my connections. I have none to the coil and no spark to my spark plug.

Checking most won't solve the problem checking ALL will. if you have a service manual for your quad get it out along with the trusty Multi meter because that's the most efficant way to tell wether or not a component is bad. Your service amnual will have all the specs on each component and how to test them.
