Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Spark plugs in bad condition or have an improper gap or are partially fouled.
2. Spark plug cables in bad condition.
3. Battery damaged or nearly discharged, should have 12.5 volts.
4. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
5. Throttle controls not adjusted correctly.
6. Water or dirt in the fuel system.
7. Water or dirt in the carburetor.
8. Intake air leak.
9. Fuel tank vent hose and vapor valve plugged, or fuel line closed off, restricting fuel flow.
10. Choke valve inoperative.
11. Engine lubricant to heavy (winter operation).
12. Ignition is not functioning properly (possible sensor failure).
13. Faulty ignition coil.
14. Valves sticking.

SOURCE: 1978 Honda Goldwing GL 1000 is stalling and running in 3 cylinder

I know this one FOR SURE!!! Killed me for days-- my mileage was HORRIBLE, and the #2 manifold was ICE cold while the other three were nice and warm. A multiple step solution ultimately got it going again, and I was thrilled finally.

Yes, the plug is fouling out---too much fuel. Idle mixture screw is useless for this issue, return to factory spot and later set Idle proper after the carb float has been adjusted. Gotta take the carbs off for this, although not completely apart. Get the group of 4 out (lotsa tricks to do this easily, otherwise, get ready for some frustrations in taking them off--lotsa hair pulling, etc.

The adjustment of the floats in the individual carb needs to be set exact. 1/2mm high or 1/2mm too low=noticeable difference either super lean or super rich.

To confirm the fouling, after riding for 10 minutes or so, just reach down and feel that exhaust manifold. It'll be ice cold with it's pushing all the fuel past this carb. My The other firing cylinders will have these manifolds warm/hot to the touch. When this occurs, pop the plug out--you'll get a lot of gas since the fuel is leaking right down in the cylinder at an amazing rate (far faster than the running carbs consume fuel. You're oil may also be tainted now with good bit of gas mixed in.

Soundss aas of the idle is set too low. Bring the idle up to 900 rpm or so.
And perhaps new plugs.

SOURCE: how do I bleed the

break loose the bleed nipple on the caliper. Open the reservoir at the brake lever and fill with fluid. Keep it open as it has a very small capacity and you will be re-filling it as you go along. Wait and see if it will gravity bleed out. If not, pull the brake lever and put your finger over the bleed when you release the lever- so it won't **** air back in. You should be able to feel the air bubbles "squish" out of the caliper. Continue till no air is left.

Tighten up the caliper nipple and fill the res to the top and your done.
