Default 1982 Yamaha Maxium 400 Spark Problem

Hi there! I'm new to the site, just joined!

Lots of information here and hoping to read up on some of it soon. I'm wondering if somone can me with a spark problem related to my 1982 Yamaha Maxium 400.
The bike been acting up lately with the spark sort of coming and going but, nothing too serious. It always managed to start up. When going, she had no problem when it came to staying going. (No loss of spark)
Today she started up a couple of times, shut off and then with the spark gone completely. (There just isn't any spark on either one of my spark plugs) I changed to a new set of plugs anad I get the same response.

Any ideas right-off-the-top as to what it can be? I'm hoping someone can drop a line to my Sympatico Mail........ jerry.hunt@nf.sympatico.ca as lol......not knowing how to navigate on this site, I may never see my post again. Hoping somone can drop me a line. (Apprecaite any help.....thanks!)

Jerry

Perhaps there is an issue with the CDI unit. I am thinking that is the only common denominator that would affect both cylinders.
