    The cylinders are locked in place. You probably just need to have the carburator adjusted.

Only running on rear cylinder


You are Not getting spark to ur front cylinder. Swap your spark plug, if not then replace your front plug wire. if this is still not the problem ad you are sure the coil is good then look into the wire that gives the coil signal to fire

Multiple carb problems


Hi, Justin and the usual suspects are:
1. Throttle cables misaligned or misrouted.
2. Damaged or restricted fuel tank venting system.
3. Inlet system air leak.
4. Vacuum piston malfunction.
5. Accelerator pump leaking or no output.
6. Plugged bowl vent or overflow.
7. Fuel level in bowl too low.
8. Restricted fuel supply passages.
9. Plugged jets or passages.
10. Worn or damaged needle or needle jet.
11. The enrichener valve not seated or leaking.

MY 97' VALKYRIE SEEMS TO BE DEAD ON ALL 3 RT CYLINDERS, WITH IT IDLING IT RUNS ROUGH. HIGHER RPMS SMOOTHES OUT IS THE LOW IDLE JETS HARD TO CLEAN ? THE DEALER SYS 900.00 I CAN'T HANDLE THAT AMOUNT...


hi had a similar problem with 1 of these i think you will find it is carbs, bit of a tough job to do but not impossible if you are mechanicaly minded, i would however say to save confusion, do 1 carb at a time completely finish and put together each carb before you do the next 1, tip, i found the floats were sticking and required removal for valve cleaning, just work on the cylinders that arnt working leaving the others alone.

It idles at 4k rpms and ive cleaned the carbs well already


If your certain the carbs are clean and it's running on all 4 cylinders, turn the idle screw counter clockwise until the tach reads between 900 and 1000 rpm's.

Lack of Power/Gas at high gear/RPM


Not a coil problem, gas problem. When you grab a handful of throttle with a fairly cold engine does it bog down on you? (choke off) if yes your running lean and likely need to go in and have your carbs cleaned out anf rebalanced.

Starts and runs. Needs choke to sta running except high rpms,


SOUNDS LIKE IT'S RUNNING LEAN. TRY PULLING THE FLOAT BOWLS OFF THE CARBS AND CLEANING THE JETS. ESPECIALLY IF IT SAT FOR A LONG TIME. FUEL TURNS TO GEL.

Mis-fire


These tiny spark plugs will foul easily just from normal choking or even in-town riding at low throttle. Sounds like one or more cylinders drops out at times. Pull and clean the plugs, especially inners ( #2 and #3.) The sooty look is not far from a misfiring condition, so get them good and clean. Sometimes spraying firing tips with carb cleaner and then burning them with an oxygen/acetylene or other type torch can help bring back good firing metal. Unless you have a clogged carb or jet from dirty fuel or running without air filters. I bet the bike comes to life at higher rpms right? Fouling plugs. Numero uno cause for this symptom. THanks TT
