You need to buy the whole coil pack, the wires are not replacable. I assume the wires were pulled out instead of a "no-spark" condition, in which the coil may not be bad. Many times a bad ignition switch, or safety switch will prevent spark.

Ok thank you, also i will have to check all of the wiring. I have a red on and off switch on the dash that im not sure what is for but im thinking head lights, and also there is a toggle switch on the dash that i believe is a kill switch. thank you i will have to order one. and find out what all the switches on the dash are for

The Red switch is for the lights, and the toggle is for the PTO, You really need to download and read the 'Operator Manual"

Did you check to see of you have a spark BEFORE you replace the coil?

Look under the seat and post the 917.XXXXX number and I am sure we can find you a Owners manual.

Have you traced out the wires using the diagram in the owners manual, and checked all the switches?

 

Plugs -> Coil pack -> Ignition Switch -> Neutral Safety -> PTO Safety -> Seat Switch,  will all cause a no-spark.
