if its not broken .. then try turning the crank with the big bolt on the crank in front of the trigger wheel .. plugs removed .. it should turn easy ..
Ok so far I checked

1. Fuses all good
2. Took cover off, cam chain is not broke and nothing else broke in there.
3. Battery is good reading 12.7VDC
4. Kill switch good.

Im an EE but I don't have the time to go through the schematics to trace everything. unless I want my bike to sit for a couple months.
Im gonna go pick up my trailer out of storage tomorrow and get the bike ready to go to a mechanic. Any suggestions?

When you had the ignition cover off were you able to turn the engine over by hand?
The ZX14 also has several ground junctions throughout the harness and if one is badly corroded that can kill spark.

You may get the clutch cover off without damaging the gasket. If the bike isnt more than a yew years old you could probably reuse it.
