MOTORCYCLE QUESTION

1974 All Other Makes All Other Models • 4,200 miles

I have a old motorcycle, and when I kick start it, it does not spark, then I turn off the key and it sparks one time. Not sure what it is

Do you have any idea what this would be?

Without a service manual it would be tough to say along with some testing/trouble shooting etc. Also knowing what kind of motor cycle it is.

Poss. Varnished carbs. Check the fuel. That its not bad or old. Check for spark as u kick it over.

If I were you I would invest in a good shop manual thats the first thing I would do. All motor cycles I have bought I have always bought a shop manual for them.

See above cadieman in the first post where the question starts it says no spark.

Then he needs to check the coil for power to it. Sounds like a bad coil pack. Check the voltage at the coil with the key on.
