Once you take that cover off you will see what needs to be done if you haven't already figured it out, just be careful not to loose magnets or scratch surfaces you might need to hit the magneto slightly to get it to move good luck man

Change a lawnmower sparkplug wire


You will need to buy a replacement magneto as the secondary (spark plug wires) are hard wired into the magneto.

How do you know if the magneto is bad

If you have a spark, you don't have a "Magneto" problem, Check the air filter and the 2 stoke oil tank. And check that the spark plug is wet, if it isn't firing and the plug isn't wet, you don't have any fuel getting to the combustion chamber.

I have a yamaha 50cc scooter where is the battery located

Some bikes don't have a battery. It sounds like the bike you have is a small single cylinder dirt bike. If this is so, then you probably have a magneto that powers the ignition.
Trace the spark plug wire from the plug to the other end. The other end is where the magneto is located.

Flat battery

hi , If the battery is flat please follow these instructions: 1 - borrow a charger , charge the battery and start the bike 2- while the bike is running , turn the light on and while the bike revs up notice if the light becomes brighter . 3- if it does , the recharging process is good but your battery is faulty 4- if it does not become brighter the charging magneto may be faulty or the regular may be faulty as well . Depending how old is the battery , the best thing to do is to change it every two years . Let me know how you go .

Bike has no power but will still crash start bike will also only go if the lights are on when lights are off bike have poor idel and will not accelerate i was thinking maybe ignition coil

It is more likely to be either the Regulatoer/Rectifier or the Magneto coils or pick-up. Your magneto sends a series of pulses at various revs. This is changed and evened out by the Reg/Rec. First step is to check quality of all connections from magneto upwards to all relevent components. IE; ignition coil, CDI unit, Reg/Rec, battery (if applic.). If the bike normally runs with a city light or running light when ignition is on, then check all switches for crossed, pinched or broken wire connections, especially around headstem area. Ideally, a service manual with relevent ohm resistance figures and a multi-meter should lead you to the problem. CDI units, Reg/Rec, Magneto Coils and pulse coils are very expensive as are ignition coils. They will all be affected eventually if the problem is not identified and fixed. Goodluck.

The magneto went out on my scooter. I had one already and used it. Now my head lights and tail lights wont work, and battery wont charge. I've been all through the wiring and cant fix it. But the scooter...

its not got a feed for charging the battery you need the right part to fix it, swoping bits from an older bike some times realy wont work out for you,, get one from the same moddel and year of bike and its then just a case of a strate swop over,,,
