I have an 87FXLR. And I’m getting fire to the coil but not the plug. I’ve change the ignition module and plug wires with no luck. Any help would be appreciated

Try this; connect the plug wires to the coil then stick the plugs into the wires and lay the plugs against the heads so they ground out then crank the engine over. Post back the results.
Also what lead up to this problem ?

That was the first thing I tried with the bike broke down. I just put a new starter on it and went for a ride and about two minutes into my ride the bike just completely shut off.

I tried putting a different ignition module and different coil but still no spark.
