No Spark, now at dealer...

Hi all, Rarely do I post a mechanical or electrical question usually search the threads. I think of myself as a decent mechanic but will always look for help when I'm stumped.

I have a 2007 680 Rincon with Fuel injection never beaten always ridden in fields or slow in the wooded trails, with about 500 miles on it, not sure of hours.

I unloaded it off of a trailer and got off the cold (outside was 85°F) machine. I was 3 feet from it and it stalled and never started again. It will crank strong the battery load test was fine and just because my Polaris had a new battery, I used that new one as a trial on the Rincon.

I have no spark at the plug or the boot with a tester in line or grounded to the head. I checked stop switch and seemed to open and close with DMM ohm test. The coil did not test bad as far as shorted with ohm check. I do not have a peak voltage tester and limited on time to work on it so I sent it to the dealer hoping for the answer.....

They told me it was Crank sensor or pulser I think it is called. After a week I checked back and they ordered the part and were replacing it to see if that fixed it. At that time I realized they don't have the tools either and were throwing parts as I would have. That didn't work so they called Honda Rep. and they said ECM was bad. They ordered it, replaced it and still not working. so now after 3 weeks of testing, Honda is sending a factory Tech? (if there is such a thing) out with a second ECM and more info.

They told me they tested the angle bank sensor, the coil, the switches, the crank sensor (new), and the machine has no codes before or after the ECM swap.

Does anyone have any suggestions so I can get this thing back before it costs more than it is worth?

Thanks and Sorry for the long post,
