Default 08 Honda CBR600RR Won't start, not getting spark.

So as the title says I have an 08 CBR600RR. It ran like a champ until about a month ago, I lowsided and goofed the right hand side up. After I picked it up it ran well but was just scuffed, got it home and it ran each time I started it for like a week. I then started to disassemble so as to replace damaged parts. I'm going to detail what I've done in separate paragraphs so hopefully it's easier to follow. As well, all the hyperlinks in the post are directing to BikeBandit OEM Part Diagrams so that I can be as clear as possible when talking about parts.

It's worth noting that I know it isn't the [BAS, #6,](https://www.bikebandit.com/oem-parts...7500#sch558666) as the fuel pump primes and it was the first thing I checked, I've had it in neutral with the light on, tried everything with the kickstand up and down.

I took all the fairings off as they were what was mostly damaged. I also replaced part labeled [#1](https://www.bikebandit.com/oem-parts...7500#sch558650) reusing all parts internally as they worked, including [#7](https://www.bikebandit.com/oem-parts...7500#sch558650). I did not start the bike after taking this cover off as I assumed since it was running before that it would run after.

Once I had fairings repainted and everything done I reassembled and found that the bike wouldn't start. It cranks and wants to but won't start. Started with replacing the battery. No dice.

Proceeded to replace spark plugs with these from the local autoparts store for good measure. Still not starting. In fact not getting any spark at the new plugs. Attemped to get spark with the old plugs to make sure it wasn't a spark plug gap issue. No spark at all. Used a test light, only real diagnostic tool I own, to see that I was getting power at [#5](https://www.bikebandit.com/oem-parts...7500#sch558666) on one side of the plug but not down in the [coil,#1,](https://www.bikebandit.com/oem-parts...7500#sch558666) itself.

Noticed the FI light was blinking code 19 - Ignition Pulse Generator [IPG]. Only blinking code 19. This made sense to have been damaged as it is [#7](https://www.bikebandit.com/oem-parts...7500#sch558650) in this diagram and under the [#1](https://www.bikebandit.com/oem-parts...7500#sch558650) that I previously replaced. So as well I put a new [#7](https://www.bikebandit.com/oem-parts...7500#sch558650) in.

Bike still wasn't getting spark, read some old *** forum posts that implied at this point it was likely [ECM, #14,](https://www.bikebandit.com/oem-parts...7500#sch558663) I replaced this as well.

This is where I am. Still no spark. I've replaced the IPG, ECM, and spark plugs but can't figure out why I'm not getting any spark at any of the plugs, I figure its not the coils as none of the cylinders are getting spark. I can't find anything on a forum to help me out and I've completely run out of idea and slowly running out of money throwing parts at this damn thing.

Having trouble viewing the diagrams. What are the names of the parts you replaced?

Did you replace the cover that had the ipg in it? The ipg can be put in backwards and cause a no spark with ipg codes....
