I have a 95 kawasaki
Is the bike flooding out then? Smell gas?
One possibility could be, sticking carb floats . It has been known for the composit floats to become porous and soak in fuel which makes them too heavy to float . Its a lonng shot but if you have to strip the carbs just check .

Hi Pete, just a guess but the "pop" was probably a bad connection, possibly the ground wire at the engine. Often when not under a load, just the clock for instance, you'll get a volt reading but under a heaver load you loose the connection.
Look for a bad connection in the ground and battery connections, Frank
Just picked up this 1996
It sounds like the carbs are gummed up from sitting. The fuel that we get now is very unstable and gums up quickly. When you choke the bike it is bypassing the carbs and that is why it runs. I would suggest a carb clean and fuel tank flush, the carbs are very intricate and should only be worked on by a qualified technician.
Needing to replace the whole key switch on a 86
Get the manufacturers original replacement part for best results. Any imitations will cause you grief ... up to and including leaving you stranded out in the middle of no where at the very worst time.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,
The voltage on the green wire must be pulsating when cranking/starting the bike, not steady. Confirm by similarly testing the voltage on the black wire on the left ignition coil. If the green still reads a constant voltage, then the CDI is faulty; to be more specific, most likely that the switching tansistor inside the CDI that drives the right ignition coil has shorted.
Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.
