Default 1996 rm125 won't run

I recently took a 96 Rm125 in on trade and was assured all it needed was a coil. The boy said it had a fresh top end job. He saidwhile he was riding one day it died. He said Suzuki looked at it and it needed a coil. Of course I put a coil on and still no spark. After that I put a new stator on and now it has a strong spark but still refuses to start. I even sprayed a little starter fluid in it, yes I know better but it didn't start anyway. I don't get it. I have fuel, I have fire, what don't I have? Timing? I haven't used a comp. tester, but comp. feels good.

there is timing on the stator assembly there should be notches on bothe the stator and the case itself loosen the two screws that hold the stator in place and align the marks i belive there are three notches on either the stator or the case if so start at the middle one and give it a try if not then try turning it in either direction
