Places to start testing would be the pulse generator and the CDI.It could be wiring or something else but those 2 are likely candidates for the problem.

It sounds like the wiring on the starter switch is backwards if that's possible. You're getting spark before and after pushing the starter, but not during the cranking. Check your wiring on the switch or key switch.
