Check the oil level and smell the oil for fuel contamination, Could be a issue with the float needle valve causing random flooding. This could also contaminate the oil and cause a higher than normal level which could blow oil out the breather onto the air filter.

If the oil smells of fuel clean the carb & replace the float needle valve and install a new fuel filter, Change the oil and give it a go.....

Don't know, Un-plug the kill lead at the coil and test for spark again.

You can also test the coil with a multimeter;

EARTH5... I had the same problem with my 500v Kaw. last yr. I'd do what Restrorob mentiond and test the coil (found mine was back and would act up firing and then not)....I replaced and it fixed the problem.

Had a similar problem with my 48" ferris. Took it in and they said it was the coil that was bad. Less than a year old.
