Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,
Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...
Initially, proposed preliminary checks (if have not been tried) with the use of a multi-meter when attempting to start:
• low pulsating voltage from the CDI trigger (pickup) coil;
• high pulsating voltage from the stator co-located capacitor exciter/charging coil;
• pulsating voltage from the CDI to the ignition coil.
