Being that this bike is vintage. You prob have points if not then you have a magneto and coil on the left side you will see wires coming out of the case by where your foot would be. There should be like 6 or 8 phillips head bolts to take case off. Look and inspect and see if maybe you did not tighten the magneto by the flywheel it should be two screws. Try that if the doesnt help. try to jump across the coil from one side to the other see if it fires. If that doesnt help. You may need new cdi box. If theres points I cant help you much never dealt with them much myself sorry. Hope this helps ya.

    I am trying to think about what the points look like it has been a while... the point need adjusted I think but I am not sure what it looks like on those bikes

    But there should be screws to adjust the points. You will see spark when toying with them if you are going the right way once you get a good spark from the points then try the plug to see if it sparks

Brake pads sticking

Is it the pads are sticking to the disc (never heard of this), or are the pistons not retracting?

If the pistons are not retracting, the could be crud on them, or some corrosion.
Clean them off before pushing back in.

Also, the rubber seals move a little with the pistons when the brakes are applied.
When the brakes are released, the seals try to go back to their original position, pulling the pistons back with them as they go.

Over time (and because of heat) the seals harden and loose their elasticity.

The cure for that is to replace the seals
If you go that far make sure to clean the pistons (see above) and the bores before reassembly.

When the bike is on rough ground the engine is under more strain so this may be a sign that the spark plug, lead or coil is failing.

1985 gold wing my front break is stuck .... where do i start i have opened the bleeder and still seems to be stuck ....

Corrosion develops inside the caliper and causes the piston(s) to stick and fail to retract when the brake lever is released.
What you will need to do is remove and disassemble the calipers. Use compressed air to remove the pistons from the calipers by applying a carefully controlled amount of air pressure to the port where the brake line was attached (be careful to not let the piston become a projectile). Carefully pry the piston seals from the groove inside the caliper bore and clean everything thoroughly with hot soap and water (SimpleGreen works well). Clean all corrosion and other contaminants from the caliper and pistons, paying close attention to the groove where the piston seal goes. Use a dental instrument or similar tool to scrape all traces of corrosion from the groove (this is the key to success).
Reassemble the calipers with new piston seals and use brake fluid to lubricate the pistons as they go in. Reinstall, top off the master cylinder with fresh brake fluid, and bleed the system. Your brakes will now function like new for the next decade or so.

Calipers are hung up

This usually happens after a long period of storage: the first time you apply the brakes, they fail to release their grip on the brake rotors. Moisture in the system causes corrosion to develop which prevents the caliper pistons from retracting when the brake lever (or brake pedal) is released.

What you need to do is take the calipers apart and remove the pistons. With the pistons removed, carefully pry out the rubber piston seals and soak everything in soapy water. Using a dental instrument or similar device, be sure to clean all of the corrosion from the groove where the piston seal fits into the caliper. Replace the seal and reassemble everything using clean DOT3 brake fluid as it goes back together.

Refill the system with new brake fluid and bleed out the air. Once completed, your brakes should work like new.

Dirt bike thats hard to start..

needle and seat are worn out in carb, to much fuel is flooding cylinder. remove carb, clean, get new needle and seat, set float. problem goes away. pull your plug after kicking. its probably wet.
When you push, or pull start you evacuate excessive fuel, when engine is warm, easier to start extra fuel burns easier.
