You can remove the engine covers and follow the wire from the on/off switch to the coil. If that has rubbed bare then it will need to be fixed (it is the kill switch). You can disconnect this wire at the coil and test for spark again. If you do not get spark then the coil is no longer any good and will need to be replaced
