Like I mentioned in over my head here not even sure how a two cylinder could run with only one firing. wouldnt the other just keep filling with gas vapor? Quick question, how much would it cost for a mechanic to look at my bike and tell me what's wrong then I could fix the problem?As always thank you, I promise that once the bike is running properly there will be another thread where I do cosmetic changes and such.

So this changes everything as now I need to find what is causing this problem. I recall that upon purchase of the bike the original owner said it needed a new boot for that side and i just replaced them both.I realize this is worst case scenario and im jumping the gun but if this is a case where I'll need a rebuild, is it worth it?Also is it dangerous to take off both spark plugs and test them out of the cylinders?

That's a good thing just wondering if one of the symptoms keyed you in.Also if I decide I'm a lazy sob how much would a shop charge to find out which one of these is causing the problem and fix it for me? (yeah I know it sounds like a waste of cash but I'm itching to ride) Lastly thank you for the input!
