I made another post several weeks ago about this thing dying but it wasn't accurate and I just want to start over with what Ive found and more detailed info.
I have fuel and new spark plug. But when I connect the plug to the plug wire and touch it to the engine I get zero spark 95% of the time when kicking the pedal. Every once in a great while I might a get a very weak one. I have this hot wired since I lost the key 2 years ago and it has ran great the whole time.
How I have it hot wired goes like this... I disconnected the white connectors inside the storage compartment that goes to the key/ignition and put a cutoff paper clip inside the other connector bridging the PINK and YELLOW wire. So I rechecked the connection and wiggled the clip, removed, reinserted it. No luck. Should I just completely cut that connector off and tie the pink and yellow? I'm good with car engines but I have little experience with electrical stuff on this moped. Where should I go from here? What to check, what to do? I don't want to haul this to a motorcycle repair shop
