Twin engine Kawasaki. If both cylinders are firing and the spark is weak, the only common part is the ignition module. I would run a cylinder test, loosen the spark plug wires, and with engine idling, remove one wire at a time, engine should continue to run. If it dies when one wire is removed, the opposite cylinder is not firing. If one is not firing, likely a bad coil on that cylinder. If both cylinders are firing, I think you need the ignition module.
