Clean every last one of your connections, there is most likely a dirty connection somewhere.

Try disconnecting your kill switch. Also try touching the cyl. Head with spark plug when checking for spark, not the exhaust

If you are going to start replacing things, why not try a spark plug first?

I would have bought a CDI before a coil, they tend to go before a coil would. If the coil doesn't fix your problem I would put money on the CDI being bad. Tbparts sells one for $45.

I was reading up online, that it could be the stator as when the chain slips off it can sometimes snap it, which that sends a signal to get a spark

Ah come to think of it I had the same problem on another ssr 110 but only laid it down for a sec so i didnt know what it was, magneto & stator is what made it start again. Esp if ur not getting spark very good chance its the stator. I think u found the answer yourself. & the CDI's on tbolt are great upgrades!

Testing Electrical Systems & components - TBolt USA Tech Database!

Testing seperate Electrical systems:

Make sure all electrical connections are tight and you have a solid ground from the engine to the frame.

Disconnect Kill button (will run/spark without it)

The coil is actually three parts 

coil

wire

cap

all three screw together like a wood screw , clockwise

Make sure you have a good spark plug (Pit bikes take the same plug as CRF50 & KLX110) 

Testing seperate Electrical Components

 STATOR:

  1. (Once you have the ignition cover off) Visual test:  Inspect  the coil bar , if you see any bulges or discoloration its likley worn out
  2. Voltage Meter will be set on AC for testing output

    The stator should have 80-100VAC (usually black/red)

  3. Set meter to OHMs

OPEN circuit or infinity OHMs is bad

COIL:

  1. Set meter to OHMs

OPEN circuit or infinity OHMs is bad
