Hey everyone I’m Jadon, having a problem w my vstar I just got it’s the 650 it only has 3900 miles and has sat in a garage for a good period of time I would assume. I got it and had cleaned carbs tank and petcock because all were filthy. It’s having the same problem I’ve read a lot of others on here have. Seems to have great compression, It will start and idle for a little with choke on but then dies after awhile, it’s seems like the rear cylinder stops firing when I pull the plug it’s fouled. But when I check for spark it’s strong any help would be greatly appreciated

Too rich on the rear bank, any smoke black when you rev it? does she smooth out on higher rpm? what colour is the pipe at the manifold? do they match colour? at idle is it spitting fuel? do both exhaust's sound the same and the same colour exhaust gases? if not, does the exhaust gas match when you rev and hold?
