I was curious if you solved your problem.  Posted today with similar problem.  I rebuilt my forks last week and rode with no problem.  Tried starting yesterday and found no spark.  Verified that plug was good and performed checks according to manual.  Think there is a problem with the magneto but not sure.  Unfortunately have had no replies.

If you have an aftermarket rewound stator driving the lights, it probably failed.  Test the stator for continuity.
