With the 4 way unpluged, and or Jumped. I would swap out the coil with a known good one?

Did you test your crank trigger (pickup)?

It would be on the outside of the flywheel houseing. With engine turning you should get a pulse of continuity between the 2 wires.

There are some resistance readings and how to test it on youtube. My pick up went bad on my 97 zrt. I can't remember the resistance #'s.

What were the stator ohms? With the jumper wire in it check for spark. If no spark 90% of the time it is stator, about 6% of the time it is the trigger, about 2% of the time it is a bad ground and about 1% of the time it is a bad cdi or 1% of the time bad coils. If you have weak spark it could be the ends of the spark plug wires need trimming...that usually doesn't cause a no spark condition.

If I remember right the ZRT600 has the 90 ohm trigger on it...the 800,900,1000 have the 175ohm trigger.

Trigger and high speed coils are ok. The low speed coil measuring 431 is what I call in the "grey area". Most OEM stators are good when they are in the 435-450 range (any used OEM stator doesn't measure 450...usually even the good ones will measure 445-448) so when you start talking about a low speed coil measuring 431...it is just one of those instances where it is "on the edge". I can't say with certainty whether it is good or bad. If you are having a no spark conditionand you've already tried the jumper wire....it is either the trigger, stator, cdi or coils. The trigger ohms show ok...but sometimes it too could be bad. So, in summary...I can't pin point your exact issue...but at the very least the low speed side of the stator is suspect....but that is as far as I can commit to.
