Connect your tester to the big thick spark plug lead and crank the engine. You should see a nice big fat blue spark. If you don't disconnect the engine kill button. If there still is no spark you will need to determine if the engine has points or electronic ignition. Most (but not all !) bikes built before 1980 have points ignition. Most bikes built after 1980 (but not all !) have some sort of electronic ignition system. If in doubt pull one of the crank end covers (Usually 2-3 screws) and look ! If you have a battery and coil points system see the points page If you have a points magneto system see the Magneto page. If you have an electronic ignition system see the electronic ignition page. ,,,

The bike has no spark going to the sparkplug. it has a kickstart and it also has a switch on the left hand side of the bikes handle bares. its also a thumpstars but i couldnt find it on the list.

i would check the coil packs a old school way to do that is to take the the spark plug wire off the spark plug put a screw driver in it with any thing but a metal handle in it and then touch the frame of the bike with the screw driver still in the spark plug wire and try to start it . if there is a spark the coil is good and to test the spark plug simply take the spark plug out the cylinder head connect it to the spark pug wire and trie to start it if see a spark comeing from the spark plug is also good

Sorry to hear that you have no spark on you bike. Just a quick thought have you measured the battery voltage could your charger have damaged battery. I over charged my battery last year ( would only produce 8V) and had to get a new one along with an Optimax 3 charger so it would not happen again.,,

Leaking compression on my VR

check the valve clearance to see if one of the valves is tight To figure out whether it's the rings or the valves try this. Lock the crank with a wrench with the piston at TDC (Top-Dead-Center) and run some compressed air in through the spark plug hole. Make sure you have a good hold on the crankshaft wrench or the engine will spin throwing the wrench off ! Now listen. If you hear air coming out at the carb or air cleaner the intake valve is leaking. If at the exhaust pipe, it's the exhaust valve. If at the engine breather, it's the rings. ,,,
