01 KE100 no spark

My friend has an 01 ke100 that won't start. It has no spark. We have tried 3 different known good coils. New plug. New plug wire. We pulled the magneto rotor off and found one of the magnets is cracked but not missing any pieces. I'm not sure if that can affect anything, but the rotor is no longer available from Kawasaki and I can't find a used one. There is voltage going to the coil when the engine is kicked. The meter reads around 24volt pulses. I know this is a CDI ignition, but I don't see a CDI module anywhere. Any ideas?

Cracked magnet renders it useless.
