#2 #4 cilinders not fireing


That's the same coil. Check that the coil has power to it while cranking. If it does, the coil's bad. If it doesn't, you have bigger issues.

Firing order for yamaha xj650 1981 motor cycle


without a manual can you set-up the timing mark on flywheel
an see what cyl is compression stroke to find #1 cly

coil 1 are spark wires 1 and 4 cyl

coil 2 are spark wires 2 and 3 cyl

now if still have trouble then (if same plug connection) switch the around inlet plug on coils form bike wire harness or swap spark wires
