    ive had my 93' tw200 for over 10 years now and i use to ride it all the time. its sat for the last couple years now and when i went to go start it recently it had no spark. ive changed the oils and sparkplug thinking it was the plug but i guess not. it has good compression and turns over freely, just no spark. anyone got any ideas how to eliminate possibilities to find the problem?

    As it is very difficult to diagnose problems like this on line without writing a big essay I would suggest you download the maintenance manual from the link Petrus has posted near the top of this section and go through some of the procedures there. When you have eliminated some areas I'm sure we can all offer you some more help.

    well if it stopped working just after removing the switch, YES!

    that switch needs to be closed (I don't know how to say it better) for the engine to start.

    It's been sitting. Have the mice made a meal of your wires? Best to check as even a small bare spot can cause trouble.

    Nope. Ive completely gone through the harness to check for loose or messed up wires.
