It's back again, new problem

Hey guys, my mate has dropped his bike back off, new problem, idles fine but as soon as he's off riding it drops the front cylinder, thinking carb issue, has anyone experienced something similar?
Coils maybe? Plugs?
If I fix it before I get help I will post here.

Have you had a look at the plugs? If so, is the front clean or sooty black? Also, you can use a strobe timing light to check for spark when the front cylinder cuts out.
Thanks faffi, haven't had a look at the plugs yet, they both are firing at idle and I can rev it up, it's only when riding it?? good idea on the timing light will give that a go for sure
