You didn't charge the battery or it has gone bad for whatever reason.
Try charging it first and check its voltage if it takes a charge and has 14V then it should be ok if it has 11V or 12V

yeah im getting 12v on the starter relay. and she chranks fine. i shouldnt be showing over 12v unless it is running so i should be ok with the battery but never hurts to try thank you

OK do this then put the volt meter on it when you try and start it and see how many volts you have.
If it drops a bunch you need a new one if it drops a little its still good.
You would want more than 12 volts if the battery was frashly chargd you would see 14 volts.

im thinking it doesnt sound like the coils..i think its rare they can all go bad at once..i think it might be your lighting coil..i pulled my front cover when i first got my ski..the gasket had failed and there was this rusty muck inside better take a peek..mike
