When I rev my bike I can feel electricity on my leavers like little needles :) does anyone have such problems?

Is the spark plug wire shorting to the frame? Does the bike run good under load at high rpm's. Check the kill switch. Got set on my ars once years ago by a faulty one leaking voltage to the handle bars.

My kill switch was shocking me under high rev's until I put electrical tape (wrapped around the handlebar) underneath the kill switch....no more tingle!!!

Check the wiring for your rear brake light on the handle bars for shorting as well. (assuming you have lights!)
