Try connecting a remote starter switch to see if it runs.

Did you ever figure out what was going on with the Gator? I am having the exact same issue. I have Replaced the ignition module, checked and cleaned grounds and quick connects still no spark.

What I found on the gator is the belt tensioner for the timing belt had come apart, I put a new tensioner on set timing, and it works great.

The first time in years and many years at that had a spark plug to fail. Gator was running and stopped. Trying to crank it back up with no success at all. First thing I did was replace the spark plug (figured if more than that back to the shop)and it fired right up and been fine. It had been in shop for tune up and service due to ethanol so maybe the plug was damaged when being installed? kt
