Hopefully this will prevent you from having to get it rewired, i'm 99% sure this would be much much cheaper..
if you'd like a long story short pass the first paragraph lol
Let me also start by saying I am no mechanical expert, but your problem sounds like one I had with my V Star.. ran fine one day, the next only one cylinder is kickin, tried eveything that would typically cause the problem and nothing fixed it so i called a mechanic buddy of mine and he came over with his voltage tester, we started at the coils where unfortunately I dont know exactly what he saw but he quickly explained that he was getting weird readings off of my coils but they were similar to each other, still it was very odd so i purchased new coils and installed them only to have no change in my problem.
So I began to backtrack and follow the wires that were giving weird readings and i traced them back to a little black box that I soon found out was my CDI Ignition Box, I looked up how much they cost and just bought one used on ebay from someone close who thankfully agreed to meet up with me to give me the part. i replaced the box and fired up my baby, she ran great both cylinders firing.
I have talked to some people since and have learned that they just kinda crap out sometimes.. Obviously I cant promise that this is your issue as well but when i read your problem I had flashbacks of my issues so its probably something you want to look into..
I can help you more if your interested, im sure theres a way to test the box without just buying a new one.. but i paid about 60 or so for mine on ebay
