Minarelli V1 weak spark

So i decided to fix up my Lazer sport 50cc again. i upgraded it with a pollini kit. I pushed it down a steep hill but it wouldn't start. The headlight would dim and the engine would rumble a little. But the bike would not spark up and keep running by itself. I figured it's the external ignition coil. Does anyone know if both sides of the ignition has to be bolted. because my frame can only fit one. The bike used too run fine when it had the old coil.

(this is the ignition coil)...https://www.treatland.tv/moped-coil-p/external-coil-wire-n-boot.htm

one is fine. You should use a locking washer though.

Probably its you condenser though if it is sparking but weak or intermittent.

the old one completely tore off. oh alright is it hard to fix? i don't even know where the condenser is.

Take the fan off the left side, its under that gold round thing called the flywheel. You'll need a special tool to get that off. Then you need a replacement condenser and soldering iron. Pretty easy thing to do.
