    Well I had a large post, but it got eaten when I tried to put a picture on here. So this time I will just say:

    This is my first bike with motor. Its supposed to get good spark, but wont fire. I dont know what engine it is, so I hope I can find some markings. Its also missing something on the carb. I would think there should be some kind of air filter to keep **** out.

    So if anyone has any thoughts or point me in a direction to figure out more, please let me know.

    WoW !

    VW and Studebaker... and now a MAB...
    You have come to the right place! :)

    Best thing to do would be to run the search function for CDI, and no spark. It's a fairly common glitch in the matrix and already well discussed.

    Could be a bad kill switch, could be bad fastening of the hi-voltage lead in the coil.
    pretty EZ to work on, so u should be able to sort it out quickly.

    Good luck

    An air cleaner is only important if you want your engine to live for a while, and not need to change plugs frequently as it dies, while it spews oil mist back out the carb, all over everything in the vicinity, including you. ;-)
