I seem to recall reading about my T250II that if the charging system and battery weren't REAL good, you'd get enough voltage drop for the left side points that it just had a weak to no spark. Something about the way things are wired up stock or whatever. I had the same problem on the left side and cleaned all contacts and new battery and all I know is that problem went away. I think they are magneto's to boot so not sure why the battery would make a difference, but did what I had read and it worked. The key thing that I read was the left side suffered first, odd.
