You don't have to be tech savvy to troubleshoot the coil.
You'll need a multi-meter that reads resistance; which is measured in Ohms. Borrow one or buy one at Radio Shack, they're inexpensive.
You'll also need to know the primary and secondary resistance values of the coil; which is usually found in a repair manual- perhaps even in your owner's manual.
If you have neither, call the scooter dealer, make sure you tell him the year, make, and model of your scooter and that you need the primary and secondary resistance values to the coil on your scooter.
Once you have the multi-meter and the specs to the coil; it's time to set up and run some tests.
Locate the coil on your scooter- follow the two leads that come out of the coil until you come to the plastic connector. Disconnect the connector.
With your multi-meter set up to read resistance- take a reading across the two coil wires; if the reading is within the manufacturer's specs (plus or minus 20 %) the primary side is okay.

To check the secondary side of the coil, leave one of the tester's probe attached to one of the coil's wire; detach the spark plug wire from the spark plug and attach the other tester's probe into the spark plug wire's terminal's end; and read the meter; if it is within (again, plus or minus 20%) of the manuals specs, the secondary side of the coil is good.

Therefore the source of the problem is NOT the coil.

Jiggling the kill switch? Are you referring to checking for loose or damaged connections?

Other possibilities; worn or melted wire grounding out at the switch- bad stator; rectifier, or CDI box. How tech savvy are you and mechanically inclined? Because you will need a repair manual to guide you through the troubleshooting process.

Unless you know how to read schematics and use your multi-meter- it could become an involved process- you may just want to bring it in for servicing to the dealer

SOURCE: 2007 kymco agility 125cc scooter

could be one of a few things. Most likely fuel related. 1) carb blocked main jet (whip it out n clean it) 2) air filter clogged up or split (remove spark plug and if it is black there is too much fuel and either the airfilter is blocked up or the choke is stuck on, if it is very white there is too much air getting infrom either a split air filter or leaking inlet pipe) 3) change spark plug.

Filling the tank full is okay. The problem sounds like condensation in the gas tank has made it to the carburetor. There should be a screw or drain plug on the side or bottom of the carb float bowl. Drain the carb and also drain some gas from the fuel line to remove any water and trash in the system. Chances are this will get you back on the road.
