Replaced everything still won't run

I have a 2001 Honda foreman s 450 that still won't run I was put in charge of fixing this bike at work after it sitting for years at first it would not hold a charge and the battery would constantly die so I replaced the rectifier then the stator , but then the neutral safety switch the the ignition coil went out after changing the stator .... So I replaced both if those things now i have no spark the original problem of not holding power is gone but will not start up it will just crank and crank any ideas

You have a good neutral light? @Fishfiles is probably the resident 450 expert now that @rich450es doesn't check in much.

At this point I would go through the manual and run checks on what I had already replaced. Throwing parts at something can get expensive and time consuming. Here's a link to d/l a manual if you need it.

So you have a good neutral light. Might seem like a stupid question, but did you try a new plug? Check timing?
