FA50 not starting after new tires

Hello,

Love all the great information on these forums.

A couple months ago I got a 1983 Suzuki Shuttle. I'm new to mopeds AND repair, just wanted to say that up front.

The moped started fine and ran ok for a couple months. I had two new tires put on, and between putting them on and getting the wheels back on, I let it sit for a month or more.

Now there is no spark when I try to start it.

I thought I read on these forums that the rear wheel or brake cable had an effect on the kickstarter. Any ideas on why it would stop starting now? There is also a pretty steady leak but I don't know that it would have an effect on the moped starting.

Thanks for any ideas on how to try to fix this!
