Puch maxi ignition help!!

Anthony Sanchez /

Hello i just bought this bike. It doesn’t have the off and on switch. But it has an ignition with a key in the headlight? The key must not be the proper one because it doesn’t turn. Would that be causing my bike to not have spark? I looked at the points and I ran a little file through and still no spark. Maybe this is the issue?

Hook those two wires together and see what happens, never seen that, maybe the po replaced the kill switch with the key switch?

I tried both and still no spark :/

Did you clean the points? Check the coil? You should be able to pull the kill wire outta your coil and get spark. I imagine that switch is just wired in between the kill connection and ground.
