The gl1100 has just 3 parts for spark.
A pair of ignition coils...a pair of ignition modules and a pair of pulse coils.
If you don't have spark on any cylinder,I'd first check that the coils are getting 12 volts with the key on...The kill switch is always suspect first.
The second most common problem is corrosion in the 4 wire plug for the pulse coils.Its right near the battery.Not the 3 yellow wire plug..The 4 wire one.
