I can't make out the printing on the diagram, but.....

If you got off the seat, it's probably a bad seat switch. That's pretty common.

Still probably the seat switch, but to isolate the coil from all your safety switches, pull off the engine shroud and disconnect the ignition module wire (the small one). If you get spark then, you know it will be in either a safety switch or your ignition switch.

Since you first had the problem by stopping the engine and I assume getting off the seat = back to the seat switch.

If I sit on seat engine will turn over
If I hold clutch down engine will turn over
Still no spark.............
If these switches allow the engine to turn over--can they still be bad??????
Fuse is not burnt out................
