No spark

I got the new jets put in for my pioes and everything was fine, however today I ride to work, get out of work and the bike wanted to start funny. I'm pretty sure no spark then I kinda shook the bike and it started. I stopped by another place and it was even harder to start. Now I am no longer getting spark to either cylinder. Anyone have any suggestions??? I tore the bike down don't know where I should start. I have been riding it since Saturday without any problems...

Bad coils or coil wires not connected properly?

Make sure battery is good and the connections are tight and CLEAN.

Then it's back to wires and coil as mentioned. Make sure the plug boots are snug and check the wire connection at BOTH ends (the connection where the boot screws on to the wire is often missed).

Good luck.

Both coils at the same time? I made sure all my connections from the coils where good. Anyone know the best way to test the coils? DVM?
