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.

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.
