With all due respect, if you didn't check the mag winding with a meter, but replacing it "fixed your problem," you may have just had a bad connection, which went away as a result of going through the motions of replacing the mag. I'm sure this sort of thing has happened to me at least a few times in my life. In any case, it's good your motorized bicycle is running again!
