Welcome Stnr27. I'm not good with electrical trouble shooting, but if it's spark, then it has to be either coil, plug wire related or in the electronics of the ignition system. Trike Lady is our resident sparky so hopefully she has an idea or two.

Hello and welcome to the forum.
Have you switched the coils to see if the problem travels?
Have you switched the CDI box plugs to the ignition coils?
Yellow arrow shows the CDI boxes. They should be located near the battery.
