Bike ran great with the new Keihin 2600A carb, now it cuts out. Its different than before, it feels like its losing spark.
I remember seeing someone say the leader motors have something in the ignition system that goes bad over time, cant remember what it was.

Greetings:

I just recently experienced Cut-Out symptom myself. Reached down to feel spark plug cap literally rattling in the cowl. Replaced the screw-on fitting on the plug and all was well. How often does one find the problem on the first try?! Hopebit's as simple for you.

Put a NGK spark plug cap on it, you won't regret it.
