tonight while riding with my flywheel cover off i noticed that my puch e50s points are arching 2-4 times per second no matter what rpm and im not sure exactly how to troubleshoot what the issue is, i have a voltmeter though.

from what ive gathered it could be the points themselfs, the condenser (most likely) and or spark plug wire. whats the best way to troubleshoot whats going on? should i just replace all of the above? points are clean and gapped at .018. ive also had problems with this engine not revving out fully and having low power in the high rpms. is this why? other then that it idles perfect and runs really well except for the revvs
