Locate your grounds. Clean and check them. Un plug all your wires one at a time and make sure they are not loose or corr.. Use a good clean plug to make sure you didnt oil foul them. There is a video from a member here on you tube showing step by step on how to check your stator. Check your ignition and kill switch wires real good also. Best of luck

just hold your throttle open just a touch.. just enough to release the saftey switch... and see if you get spark then... had it happen to me.. had to bypass the carb and throttle safteys
