Bad morning....Bike started running rough. 4 Months, 1 Week ago  
Yesterday morning I left my driveway and about a quarter mile down the road and the bike started sounding funny. Still ran ok, but the sound was off. I turned around and went back to the house and the bike still sounded off. It idles ok but just doesn't sound right. It sounds like its only running on one cylinder. I put my hand over the exhaust and the front cylinder feels twice as strong as the rear one.
I just changed the plugs two weekends ago so I'm hoping its either a loose plug wire or maybe a bad one. I'm also going to check for a cracked intake along with inspecting the plugs I just installed. A compression check will also be done if needed.
The bike ran rough in the mornings when I bought it last month and before I changed the plugs. Afterwards the bike ran great in the morning but Thursday it started back firing thru the intake when it was cold but a mile from the house all would be fine.
Any other suggestions on where I should check?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
