Check your wires for your key switch. If you have a tether check the wiring for that. There are only so many things that would stop spark. Worst case it could be your coil or CDI. Get a multi meter and check from the magnito and on to find your bad point.

it's got to be somewhere in your wiring. like banshee said go thru and check it all. once you have went over it go over it again just to make sure you didn't miss anything. most of the time when you loose spark it's just a minor wiring problem... good luck and let us know if you figure it out...

good thing it was just something small and not something that could have been costly. we all know the costly repairs are the worse especially when your really wanting to ride......

nah the worst is when it's something really rally simple and youi don't check and then proceed to dump money and parts into it only to find that it was a loose plug. that would for sure be the worst. oh yeah missing riding because of it makes it worse too.
