SOURCE: Does not have fire on the 2 & 3 cylinders.

Cilinders 1 and 4 are on the same coil, so as the 2 and 3 on the other coil.
Remove all spark plugs from engine and plug them in the spark plug leads and against the engine
To check coils easily: switch the low voltage wires from coil 2-3 to coil 1-4.
No spark at 1 and 4 is a sign that the coil is broken.
No sparks at 2-3 is a sign that the ignotion switchbox is broken, or the pick-up coils for 1-4.
Here also, switch the wires of the pick up coils. If allways the same plugs sparks, the switchbox is broken. If the other plugs sparks, then the pick-up coil is broken...

Hope it helps

SOURCE: 2003 ZR7S #4 cylinder running cool

Possibly yes; also may be a coil issue too. I had seen this same issue some time back with an older KZ650, in the end it was a coil. By stroke of luck working with the carbs put the wires back as required.
I hope this may have helped,

John Deere 737,Kawasaki motor, gets hot start's missing on one cylinder, cools off start's run fine, could it be the coil breaking down

possible so have the coil checked
could be from dirt and grass blocking the cooling fins of that cylinder causing the problem with mixture
if you spent that much with a dealer and the problem was not fixed maybe you should complain about the cost and the failure to fix the fault

J power and smokes white

Possibly a head gasket problem (as the head heats up it warps slightly, allowing coolant to seep into the cylinders, which is the source of the white smoke--steam) Is the motor using coolant?
