Lost your key huh? Riiiiiiiiight. I'm sure you did! Wouldn't want to be your neighbor when he wakes up tomarrow and finds his sled gone.

J/K man, wish I could help but I have no idea.

Unplug the ignition switch wire and tape them up. Make sure handlebar kill switch is up, and then pull start it.

that was the first think i tried, no go, must be something else wrong it's been sitting out in the yard with no covers for 3 years, headlight works when i pull the starter, have to find someone to hold the spark plug while i pull the starter to test J/K,
might be the ignition coil, all i have is a current tester to find out not sure if that will work
