Try removing and inspecting your coil wires . Sometimes the core of the wire will receed, resulting in bad contact with the pin in the coil. Trim a little rubber off the end and reinsert, then tighten them down well. This could cure your problem.

I've had the same problem somedays the bike runs fine. Other days it runs rough tack jumps losses power. Yesterday I decided to check the front coil and it checked ok with a meter. Putting it back together i noticed that the wires were not seated all the way in the coil. Had to reroute the wires to get some more slack. Went for a test ride. Commute to work and home no problems. I did have one little problem on the test ride but i think thats another post.
