without a manual can you set-up the timing mark on flywheel
an see what cyl is compression stroke to find #1 cly
coil 1 are spark wires 1 and 4 cyl
coil 2 are spark wires 2 and 3 cyl
now if still have trouble then (if same plug connection) switch the around inlet plug on coils form bike wire harness or swap spark wires

Your fuel mixture is incorrect, take a look at your plugs, if they are white or clean it's too lean, black and sooty too rich, grey to light tan good mixture.

The only problem in getting the carbs in sync is a poor service department. Contact the area manager for Yamaha and request he arrange to have a competent shop sync the carbs. The main additive causing problems is the ethanol alcohol. It tends to corrode valves, carb fittings and jets. Be pro-active and put an octane booster in the tank when filling it. This will greatly lessen the problems you are having. Legal action is useless simply because the problem is due to the USA requirements for fuel. That is the mitigating factor which Yamaha has no control over and as such, relieves Yamaha from liability. You said, " Not one time did the salesperson actually point out the true nature of the Yamaha warranty '. As a responsible consumer the same must be said of yourself. " Not one time did I actually ask the true nature of the Yamaha warranty. " Yes, I know that what I have said is hard to hear, but as a consumer, the responsibility falls on you. " Cleaveat Emptor " is Latin for " Let the buyer beware ". Get the bike running then sell it or trade it for a bike that, after researching the other brands, better fits your needs. Don't let this problem consume your life. Chalk it up to experience, let it go, and move on with your life. Blessings and best wishes.

Testimonial: "You are very right. Let the buyer beware!!! As it stands now, The bike has been sitting at the dealer. I have received calls telling me they almost have it fixed, But then they need more time. Yamaha has agreed to pay for the repairs. They to realize the potential of sales should this get out into the news. It's been 8 days since I left the bike. I'll give them alittle longer and then take the next step which I've already looked into. I may not no much about the mechanical aspect of motorcycles, But after spending sixteen years in law enforcement, There are always legal avenues which can, and do if pushed, Will protect people. Thanks again for your insight. "
