2008 Buddy 50

Changed the ignition switch on my 2008 buddy 50 since i lost the keys. This might be my issue. Since then it won’t start. All electrical except the headlight work (brake light turns hazards horn) The bulb is fine but no voltage to the connector.

Now I have no spark.

Changed the spark plug, coil wire with pickup, and the cdi with a Chinese one that says works for buddy. (Lights up when cranking) pulled the stator and cleaned the sensor. Still no spark.

I asked around to a guy that knows them better than me and he said since I changed the ignition switch the key may not be programmed to the cdi causing no spark. Has anybody had an issue or a fix for this?

Last thing I was going to change was the stator and pickup, but can’t seem to find one for my model with the same connector. Also don’t want to be just throwing parts at it that it doesn’t need. Everything seems to be in order and I can’t figure it out. Please help.

None of the Genuine scooters use a programmed key so that's not it.
I would say double check the ignition switch electrical connections including checking that none of the crimped on connectors have cut completely through the insulation and severed the wires (yes, I've seen that happen).
If that fails, I would suspect a bad ignition switch. Just because it's new doesn't always mean it's good. If you have a multimeter, you can always check for continuity or that there's actually power coming out of the wire(s) that are suppose to have power when the switch is set in the "on" position. That's what I would have done before replacing everything else anyway.
