mxz 380 no spark

i have a 2002 Mxz 380F RER( don't laugh). it is the coolest little thing i have ever owned.... problem is i was going down the trail one day and it just died. it has 2900 miles and it had always ran great, but it was like i hit the kill switch or something. there was no spuddering or hesitation.... fine one minute, dead the next. i checked and there is no spark. i thought it may be the calibration module, but before i replace that i was wondering if anyone knew of a way to test it? i checked for loose/broken wires and found nothing. any and all help/suggestions would be very much appreciated.

What is the calibration module? Do you mean CDI?

I haven't had to deal with one of those yet, but looking at the diagram, there is that and the 2 pickup coils under the flywheel that provide spark. It looks like the calibration module is a combination of the CDI and coils all in one. See if a dealer has a tester for it.

Could the flywheel key be sheared?

if the keyway on the flywheel is sheared, the motor will still get spark, just nowhere near the right time, and make it backfire badly through the carbs, or exhaust. had a 400 Panther that was given to me, , junked it out anyway since it had sat so long and everything was just siezed up.
