Sparking system?

Do u ever have to replace spark plug wires on these bikes and like my bike misses starting at 2,500 rpm could that not have something to do with the sparking system on the bike or need new wires sense I've already had my local bike shop go thrust and clean and set carbs twice and still no fix ?

Try platinum or iridium plugs first- they spark at a lower voltage. If you have a dielectric breakdown anywhere in the ignition system, specialty plugs will remove some of the stress.

In short, yes it has been known for the plug wires and plug caps to go bad.
