v star not firing on the forward cylinder
I just purchased a 2001 V star 650. The bike has 2,850 miles on it and has not been ran since 2008. Friend stored it inside and it looks like new. Once started on choke, it would idle but die when throttled. I drained the tank added stabilizer and cleaned the plugged jets. Engine cranks like it has even compression and starts and will now take throttle but, running somewhat rough. Noted that the forward cylinder is cool to the touch and exhaust gases are also cold. Rear cylinder warms up normally. Pulled front plug which was gas fouled. Replace plug and no change in the condition. just checked coil ignition systems resistance with a fluke 87 III. on the 400 ohm setting both coils are at 4.30 ohms resistance. secondary coil resistance at 400 ohms settings: Rear 21.87 Front 21.57.
I have ran out of ideals. Any help would be appreciated
