Re loosen the magneto place business card between mag. And flywheel retighten mag mounting screws remove business card shine up flywheel with sand paper with the mag off the motor clean rust off flywheel before remounting mag with business card.
How old is the engine? Does it have electronic ignition or points? Check the engine stop wire where it attaches to the throttle control on the engine. Make sure it is not grounding out. Has the magneto been removed? That is the Y shaped part behind the flywheel, where the spak plug wire attaches. If the mag has benn removed, it needs to be re-adjusted. The correct gap is .020 of an inch, about the thickness of a matchbook. This gap is measured between the two legs of the mag and the flywheel. I hope this helps, good luck.
To test for spark remove ground wire from ignition module and test for spark with a proper spark tester. If you have spark the module is good and the problem lies elsewhere. No spark and the module is bad and should be replaced
There are a number of things that could prevent your plug from sparking. Here are some things to check before you replace the mag.:
1) Make sure all control switches are turned to the 'on' or 'run' position.
2) Check the ignition wire's connection to the spark plug. The round clamp that meets the spark plug can sometimes loosen over time. You can tighten it by first disconnecting the spark plug, then gently crimping the end of the ignition wire that grabs the top of the spark plug with a pair of pliers and refitting it to the spark plug.
3) Is there a kill switch or a grounding lug that is stuck to ground, preventing the plug from firing? Sometimes those metal tabs that ground out the plug get bent into the 'off' position.
4) Are all the electrical connections clean and snug?
5) Are the flywheel magnets dirty? Roughing them up with sandpaper and wiping them down with some solvent is sometimes all you need to generate a better spark.
6) Check that the points are properly timed and gapped. Even if they are good, improper gapping can leave you without spark. They should be about a matchbook's thickness apart at top dead center.

I am unsure if your bike uses a coil or CID pack for the spark but whichever it has is most likely the cause. also if you have a kill switch then I would disconnect the wiring to make sure the switch is not grounding out the spark.
