Has plenty of power early then at 5k rpm it loses power... drops and stays at 4K even with full pedal... doesn't sputter or mis or anything else... like it's choking out...
Expert:  Matt replied 4 months ago.


in that case Id say its likely to be an electrical / electronic issue

I'd start by checking the condition of the engine earth connections to the battery and the connections to the CDI module

if this all looks OK then I'd suspect that the CDI module is faulty
