SOURCE: runnin on one cylinder

First of all, did you remove BOTH spark plug wires for the cylinder? Each one has two spark plugs/wires for a total of four.
It sounds like your carbs are out of sync. One cylinder may be getting too much fuel and fouling out. You need a carb sync tool that hooks up to the vacuum ports on each cylinder to see if both are pulling the same amount of vacuum/fuel.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Was the main 30 amp fuse checked/replaced? The main fuse would on the starter relay. To locate the starter relay, follow the cable from the battery's + terminal.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

the carb is clogged up. You will have to remove the float bowl and clean the jets. use spray carb cleaner. Use a very fine copper wire strand to probe the jets--do not scratch or englarge. Empty all the gas out of the bike including fuel lines. use fresh fuel. Be sure to count the number of turns you make on any adjustment screw and write them down. This will make it much easier to put back together in proper adjustment.

Hi, Blinddogs12 nice novella you obviously have a wiring issue that requires a professional diagnosis for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your problem.

Sounds like you have a seized engine. If it is seized with age, pour copius amounts of oil in through the spark plug holes and leave to soak for a few days. That will help with seized pistons. If it is bottom end, strip the engine down and repair as required.
