    The alternator needs a battery to run the bike so YES.  Otherwise no sparks.

    I worked on Hondas for several decades. You gotta have the battery fully charged. It does not have a permanent magnet in the alternator.

    They have coil ignition & a permanent magnet alternator. The alternator will provide enough electricity to fire a plug with a bump start but without a battery there you have no voltage stability & the .likelyhood of getting a suitable voltage pulse from the alternator to coincide with the plug firing in minimal.

    Here's two words to look up: 1) magneto, which the Honda ain't got; and 2) alternator, which it do got. Now, review what they do and how they do it, and the typical circuitry. Then think about your question. Sorry about the thinking. Hope your brain doesn't explode.

    Pull the park plug cable off a spark plug and hold it near a cylinder fin. Try kick starting the motor to see if you have spark.Make sure the key is turned on while doing this. If there is spark it should start unless there is old gasoline in the carb which has plugged up the gas flow through the main jet.

    I have not tried this in years, but I believe it does need a battery.  Even a very, very low battery will be enough but it does need some electricity.

      It has a dead battery in it. No power whatsoever, I tried to kick but nothing. I dont have access to a charger or a vehicle with jumpers right this moment.
