Question about 1996 kawasaki GPZ 500 S - GPX 500 R
Hi and welcome to FixYa,
If only a single cylinder is not firing, initial possibility to consider and/or check since "...good spark and comprestion..." would be the carb; or more specifically presence / absence of fuel in the carb bowl and its ability to deliver fuel through the intake manifold to the combustion chamber.
A simple check would be to collect the fuel from the carb of the cylinder not firing through the drain hose (bottom of the bowl) and loosening the drain screw. Note the quantity and quality of fuel. Doing the same with the other 3 carbs would give you a reference.
Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.
