I'm not familiar that familiar with the Kawasaki engines (although I have one in the shop). You haven't mentioned about checking for a ground. I would disconnect the battery, then disconnect the engine to the tractor wiring and take my ohm meter and check to see is one or the other is reading out to ground. Then if one does read out to ground get a wiring diagram and see where the possibilities are.
Taking a nap when your stumped usually works for me too!

also, make sure the plug is good.
Sometimes a plug will work fine grounded out on the engine, but when installed, under pressure, they fail.
