    No spark on #1 at low revs

    I'm experiencing no spark on cylinder #1 at low revs on my '86 - on idle that cylinder stays cold, when riding I can hear and feel it kick in at around 4500-5000rpm. :ummm: I have thrown new plugs in, and I have replaced the coil.

I thought it was probably carb related, so I rolled on the throttle in fifth just to see if it got better or worse. At about 3/4 throttle I could hear a...

    Carb #1 Butterfly gap

    So I understand that the butterflies should be "barely not closed" when at rest. I'm guessing this is so the bike will idle. I'm wondering if there's a prescribed amount that I might be able to check with a feeler gauge so that I know that carb #1 has its fly open the right...

    1997 fouling #1 and #2 Plugs

    I have a 1997 VMax that is fouling the #1 LH FWD and #2 LH Rear spark plugs. The bike is new to me so I do not know the history of the maintenance. Is the coil the same for both the LH cylinders?
