check your point gap and all your wire connections.the only things that will cause no spark are;

bad charging coil (very rare)

bad condensor (very common)

dirty or misadjusted points (also very common)

bad tail light bulb (somewhat common)

bad ignition coil (rare)

bad plug wire (somewhat common)

bad plug boot (common)

use of a resistor plug in a resistor plug boot (kinda common)

bad ground (common)

bad kill switch (very common, specially if it has water in it)

on your ht coil (the coil with the spark plug wire) there will be a wire that comes from the magneto and plugs into the coil, and splits off and runs up into the wire harness. unplug it from the wire harness and then test for spark. doing this isolates everything to just the components needed for spark. if no spark still, clean and regap your points. if no spark after that, get a new condensor.
