Went to plow with my Yamaha Grizzly 600 last night and it just turns over with no starting in site. Pulled the plug replaced it with a new one than I put up against metal and turned over looking for any sparks there was none. I have printed off a manual from the internet on the Yamaha but have no clue where to start looking next. I had just paid a dealer to put a new winch for me this last fall and than proceded to load into a trailer and brought back to Minnesota but it had been running a few times in between. Not sure if any relevance on cold, moisture, trailering, new winch.

Cold, moisture, trailering probably not. Winch, possibly.
It would be worth checking the wiring job and seeing if any of the OEM connections were disturbed.
Get a multimeter.
Check the black and white wire for continuity to ground. With the key on and kill switch set to run, it should be a huge number or infinite. With the key or kill off, it should be near zero.
Test the stator, trigger coil (aka pulser), ignition coil, and any switches involved in starting/running which include the ignition switch, kill switch, gear position switch.
I don't know if your bike has an ignition fuse or not.
