Problems with 84 Yamaha Maxim 1100

I have a 84 Yamaha Maxim 1100. When I take one of the spark plug caps off on the inside on the left it doesn't make a difference but she still got her spark on the plug. Also, I put another set of carbs on her and when they were hooked up the gas ran right out of her. But I checked before putting them in and the jets were working fine. Now she'll start but when I open the trottle she'll only rev up to 3000 rpms, she won't open full. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!

-First of all,the only year they made this bike was 1982,if you have it and is absolutely sure it's an 1984 or you are from outside the USA and then i gotta have more info and maybe pictures about this bike.
-Anyways,supposely it's the same one as i have here,a 1982 it coul'd be several things:
1-Stuck needle
2-Sunken float
3-Flutes obstructed
4-Secondary idle circuit obstructed
-Now regarding to electric:
1-ignition cable on the side shorted
2-Cracked spark plug
3-Spark plug inner core missing
4-Fouled plug
-If you want give me a call:

First sorry fore my bad english, are you shore that is just one cylinders that not have ignition? Maby is one of the ignitioncoles broken and run the engine on two cyl. you can feel that when the ingene is running and two exautpipes are cold. but check first the sparkplugs and the whires.

Cylindar 2 fouls out plug at 55 mph on my 1100 yamaha maxim 1982


Hi, Shane and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel mixture too rich or enrichner left out too long.
2. Faulty spark plug.
3. Incorrect spark plug for the engine type or service.
4. Piston rings badly worn or broken.
5. Valve guides are badly worn and/or seals worn, crushed or have come off the valve guide and are pumping oil through it.
6. Spark plug cable weak or leaking check for spark jump in the dark.
7. Faulty ignition coil.

Engine turns over but wont fire


There could be a lot of problems that could cause this,but first I would see if it's getting any gas at all.take out the spark plug and see if it's wet,if it is then atleast you know that fuel is reaching your plugs.Next check your spark plug and it's condition.
