Be sure there is a voltage regulator/rectifier in your system.
Its a little aluminium block with small cooling fins, and should be fixed with contact on the chassis.
You can take every regulator, even from a moped for a simple electric circuit.
You just have to know if your bike was a 6V or a 12V one
Otherwise, you can easily make a regulator by yourself, a diode bridge, and a 12V regulator from your local electronics shop.

ill do a list of things that can help or be the problem.
1) Pull the coil off and wire brush down all the bare metal. then do the same to the frame where it bolted on. Make sure there is a grounded wire that bolts back onto the coil if there was one, Replace the wire end for the ground peice.
2) Pull off the spark end cap and cut the wire down a few mm until you see new wire then screw it back on. (if its NGK)
3) follow the wire from the kill switch and make sure it isnt grounding out.
4) Hotwire - find the kill switch and unplug it. if this doesnt help unplug the ignition key wiring. on older bikes it will work for ignition but not lights for the key part. if this helps you need a new Ignition barrel / Kill switch.
5) check your wiring harness make sure it isnt grounding anywhere exept where its ment to.
6) make your your engine to CDI is plugged in and has no oxide in it
7) try and find somone with a running bike the same as yours and borrow there CDI, if this helps you need to buy a new CDI or check yours for wiring shorts.
hope this helps if not buzz me (skuly@Hotmail.com)

Your fuel mixture is incorrect, take a look at your plugs, if they are white or clean it's too lean, black and sooty too rich, grey to light tan good mixture.
