it doesnt have points, i think its CDI. But guess wut? i went and got those NGK plugs, and the plug still seems to be the problem. I once it starts to ping and pop, a new plug always does the trick. I even took the "bad" plug out and tested the sprk compared to a brand new one, and the both seem to give off a strong spark! but the bike just wont run on a plugg that is more than about 3 days old. There has to be a reason for this.
