Hi ..... Do you have an ignition switch ? I'm sure all the early XR's didn't have a battery or ignition switch .............. just kick and go. Fitted with an ignition pack, you kick and it generates sparks. In the UK if you used one on the road insurance wouldn't cover you for Theft as they were too easy to steal.
Let me know how you get on.

1979 honda 250 dirtbike want fire no spark

Check to make sure there is no damage to any wiring. Check to make sure the magnet on the flywheel still has meagnetism Also make sure the ignition switch is not not the problem by spraying it down with contact cleaner on the electrical portion. It can corrode from sitting so long. If that does not work, Swap the ingition module./ignitor for a known good one- it is most likely that module failed.

I have an old XL-xr 250 honda Motorbike i think its a 1985? model from all the pics i have found. i want to wire it up so its just the most basic bits on it. no lights or starter button required just kick...

I don't know if the Honda you have can be wired that way. Most Honda's are set up to draw ignition power from a battery. This means you need a voltage regulator/rectifier, etc.Some XR's come with a headlight and a taillight, handy for getting out of the woods after dark. If you have an XL you will probably have to use the XR stator,harness,and CDI to convert it to no battery. The plate on your frame neck should have the model number on it. I would check the dirt rider forums (advrider and others)and see if you can find someone who has converted your model.
