Tomos no spark blues

After doing a search here I kept seeing threads on people leaving their moped out in the rain, mine lives in a garage. So Im here to be that guy. So my ‘94 A35 ran perfectly fine, no issues then all of the sudden I think I felt a quick studder( no sound) and she began to bog down. I swap the spark plug thinking it might be fouled but that’s not the case. Is there any “oh shit, *blank* fucks up all the time! Do this!” option before I start a complete check every tiny thing in a couple days when I can get to it? And yeah I know blah blah it’s a Tomos they never have spark haha blah blah

Ran out of gas? Petcock screen or banjo filter clogged? Clogged main jet in carb?

Got spark? Ground the plug to the head and turn it over.

It sounds as though you ate a ring take the spark plug out take a pencil with a new eraser see if you can wiggle the piston if it goes side to side or up and down chances are you lost a ring then you have to take off the head and everything else but if you have spark and it ain't starting and it doesn't have compression it's a ring hopefully it didn't destroy the cylinder

so this is an easy way to see if there is adequate spark and it's cheap and at near any auto parts store. While u are at it buy a compression tester for $15 bucks. If u r going to own a moped it's time to own a few diagnostic items. Aside from running out of gas there are all sorts of reasons why gas isn't getting into the cylinder.
