    • 1 The gears on a motorcycle run in this order: first, neutral, second, third, fourth and fifth. When you are moving, shifting up from first gear will skip over neutral and shift you right into second gear. The only time that shifting up from first will get you into neutral is when you are not moving.
    • 2 Pull in the clutch lever and tap the gear lever down until it stops. This will signify first gear. Pressing the gear lever down will shift you down one step and pressing it up will shift up one step.
    • 3 Tap the gear lever up one click while still holding in the clutch. This will put the bike into neutral.
    • 4 Start the bike. The bike needs to be in neutral to start.
    • 5 Hold in the clutch lever and tap the shifting lever down to shift to first gear.
    • 6 Release the clutch slowly and give it just enough gas to get moving.
    • 7 Listen to the motor to know when you need to shift. If the engine is making a low grumbling noise, then it will need to be shifted down. If it is making a high squealing noise, then it needs to be shifted up.

SOURCE: Need step by step how to synchronize carbs on 1982 yahama xj 1100

It doesn't really matter which make or model of bike it is, the procedure is exactly the same.
Firstly you will need a set of vacuum balance tubes - do you have those?
TRying to balance a 4 without is an exercise in futility. They are reasonably cheap for a home set.
Here is a step-by-step.

SOURCE: Rear brakes not fully releasing

I had an XJ 1100 and had the same problem. after paying someone else two diferent times I found an article talking about the very problem, (wish I could tell you where it is but) what it said was this system was prone to moisture getting in the rear master cylinder. I took the cylider apart and carfully cleaned all the brown residue out of all the small areas and orfices. then with a large suction/pressure pump bought at NAPA I forced good quality dot 4 fluid through the lines untill all the fluid came out clear (better buy 2 quarts this may take several flushings. then disasemble and clean the wheel cylinder as carefully as you did the master cylinder. This solved the problem on my 82 XJ 1100, the article said the trick was that if you live in a climate where weather chages with the seasons changing the fluid each riding season should prevent this from clogging again. Hope this helps, mine worked great afterwords.

SOURCE: 1982 XJ 650 maxim cylinder 2 & 4 won't run

Are you saying that 2 & 4 got gas with external tank but not with gas tank? If so something else has happened ,if gas is getting to the carb it cannot by-pass 2 to get to 1. Take the tank back off ,connect to external, again. See what happens.

SOURCE: 1980 Yamaha XS 1100 Carduretor diagram

It is part of a detent mechanism for the choke. No, all 4 carbs do not have them, only 1.
Here is a link to Yamaha's website, where you can pull up a diagram of your bike's carbs. The ball is #10 and there is also a spring with it.
http://www.yamaha-motor.com/sport/parts/home.aspx
They are saying there are 2 balls and 2 springs, but I do not remember them having 2. I also don't see another #10 or #11 on the picture anywhere. You should be able to look at the rod that connects all the chokes together and see if there are 2 sets of dimples for the balls. Obviously there will be one set in carb #1, if you find another set of dimples for a detent ball, then there indeed would be 2. Also, the carb body would be drilled for the spring and ball like the #1 carb is.
Thanks
