I dont think I am gettign a spark. how can i check if I am getting a spark? if I am getting a spark i will replace my spark plug, if not I will replace my hose and cdi (probably fried it if i get no spark).
The red/yellow and green should come from the kill switch. You have them connected correctly. Take those two wires off, this will remove the kill switch from the equation. Then see if you have spark. Not uncommon for the kill switch to be defective from factory or just go ka---poot, as in non working. Whatever...you need to upgrade the plug and wire if you haven't already done so.
