Saw 'Lambretta' and thought why on SYM board...

Googled and saw that SYM made modern scooters for that company..which you already knew, I'm guessing

I see a model called LN 125 (typo on ON 125?)

Anyway, this might be useful information on troubleshooting and maybe, specs for components of your scooters ignition system...Chapter 16 (

I wonder if you tested your ignition coil before're going to need a multimeter to help avoid replacing every component and even if you did so, it could end up being a broken or shorted wire, loose connector, bad ground, etc...

Lots of videos on youtube, search 'scooter no spark' 'motorcycle no spark'
Might help give you a good generic overview

Did you own this scooter when it was running?

I have a rebranded Lambretta 125 (VGA Formula 125) and this past moist winter the kickstand switch gave in and cut ignition permanently.
There is a switch at the base of the kickstand so you cant start the scoot and drive on with the kickstand down (US thing?).
