there is no key needed, unless someone added an ignition switch. the lock you see is for the steering lock. if you look on the ignition coil, there is a wire that comes from the magneto, and then splits to go up to the handlebars. if you disconnect it where it goes up to the handlebars, and you still dont have spark, then the problem is in the pointa and/or condensor. but you must remove the spark plug to test for spark. to do this, insert the plug in the boot, then just lay it against the cylinder.

you need to have 120 lbs of compression or higher for it to run. test it with a gauge.

also, a bad tail light or brake light bulb will cause you to not have spark.
