    Hi I'm new to this forum but I thought it would be a good way to get some opinions on my problem. I recently bought a 1980 gs550 for $250.

    I have a 1979 Honda XL125S trailbike that I can't get a spark with. I'm a very amateur mechanic. I'm pretty confident that the CDI and coil are OK and so am now looking to the pick up and alternator. I've found engine oil in the alternator area when I removed the left crankcase cover. Is this...
