Question about GAS Motorcycles
Not trying to seem like a jerk but did you replace the spark plugs? It may still get spark but it can sometimes be too weak to get ignition (check by pulling the plug out, putting it back on the boot, touching the plug to something ground on the bike like the engine, then turn it over to see if spark is jumping the gap). The obvious thing is that you're not getting spark, the next thing coming to mind is good ground. Hopefully this helps.

First off did you buy it new? Second has it gone through its break in tune up yet?Did you do the re jeting? My guess is it was re jeted wrong & neeeds to be re jeted again or could also need more air(upgraded air kit) or a tfi or power comand fuel mod.My bike also poped untill I did the air & fuel upgrades & them upgrades will also give you a much needed house power needed for this rig.
Bring it to a shop & have it looked at.......

your voltage/reg. can be tested in a couple different ways check ground res. check res. then revs. bias on diodes you have ac in dc out it sounds like you may have a diode gone bad allowing ac curent to flow causing the wires to get hot

You will find that there is a problem with the carbie. It runs with the choke on because the choke engages the "enricher" circuit. The idle circuit is different a different circuit inside the carb. When just crack the throttle on, you use the pilot circuit, and then main jet with more twist of the grip. You will need to completely strip the carb, remove all jets, spray carbie cleaner throughout, and blow out all capillary tubes and holes inside the carb with compressed air. Pay particular attention to the fine holes inside the venturi near the butterfly valve. You may need to use a fine piece of wire, like a guitar string to open up any that are clogged.
There is not much else that will cause the symptoms you have. Check for air leaks about the inlet manifold also, spray some carbie cleaner about the manifold connections boots, the revs will change when it sucks up the cleaner through the leak.
Happy to talk to you more about it.

Did you sync the two carbs? If not the rear may be getting all the gas from the rear carb and none to the front. Twist throttle engine off and see if front carb cable is pulling the carb open.
Also unscrew the spark plug boot from the front spark plug wire and trim 1/8th inch off the wire and screw the boot back in. The plug wire end may be corroded on that wire.

This particular model uses a BS36ss carb for the # 1carb or back as you are calling it. there is an input and output as a pass through to the second carb intergrated into the fuel delivery system of the # 1 carb. the # 1 carb draws fuel from this port also. check for obstructions at this point where the 2 carbs intersect and in the transfer line to the front carb remember this is a neg. pressure regulated fuel system so any leaks at carb 2 (Front Carb) or Balance Tubes Between cylinders and it wont function . vacuum is the key
