Default No spark

I have a 95 z440 It has no spark on the pto side, I changed plugs didn't help, so went with the next least expensive part, the coil. That didn't help. The next part is the cdi box. But before I do that I need to know, can the cdi box only fail on one side. I was always told that either it works or it does'nt.
Thanks

No, is only provides a single spark pulse to the coil and that fires off every 180 degrees.
Go back to the plug wires and check the end caps have good connection to the wires. Unscrew the ends and clip off 1/4" and try again.

Like OCR said, check the plug wires, boots and caps. try switching the plug boots from one wire to the other and see if that changes which side gets spark.

Sounds funny but try unplugging the kill switch connection under the handle bar pad! Then check for spark with it unplugged. Cats are notorious for that.
