There is a small black wire that attaches to your ignition coil. This is your kill wire. Remove your kill wire from your ignition coil, then check for again. If you still do not get a spark to your spark plug, then you very likely have a faulty ignition coil.

Also, check for rust on your flywheel magnets, and on your ignition coil.
