90 Fourtrax 300 - no spark

I have a 1990 Fourtrax 300 and suddenly I've lost the spark. Purchased a CDI box from eBay and put it on over the weekend and I still don't have any spark. What else should I check/replace?

is the neutral light on , on the dash ?, did you buy the c.d.i. from a dealer off ebay ?, or was it some china product ?, if it was not oem from honda ?, then that explains it.

Yes, the neutral light is shining white on the dash.

I bought this CDI. Did I buy the wrong one? https://www.ebay.com/p/CDI-Box-Ignit...8697985&chn=ps

How can I test this new CDI to see if it's defective?
