So i buy it like new from the factory in other words.I don't have any symptons but only some Backfires by the day i bought it. First i check carb so the membrane accelerator was broken cause of the 14 years that the bike was without working. Less backfires but not No backfires.Then i change the manifold o-rings 3 of them nothing happend so the backfires keep doing it 4 years without stop but it's only few in many km so i don't care. It's the only sympton i have if it's usefull.
Perhaps new diaphragm tore upon installation ? 3 O-rings ?? Or 2 O-rings and a gasket for Carb to intake ?

Though rare new parts can be defective. Put rear plug wire on front cylinder and see what happens.

you have a bad coil dude. their is a way to check a coil. .5 ohms is the max limit, I think. need a multi meter to check if the coil is in tolerance. sure u did it with boat motors. if one cylinder is running ok, the other one is getting fuel unless you left a rag in the intake manifold. simple elimination of trouble. air, fuel, spark. that's all it takes.

I switched the coil wires on my bike on accident once and the bike wouldn't even start. I have to agree with Mike here.
