    Usually, the engineers that design wiring circuits know more about what is needed.
    I went to the grocery store and there was a sign at the door. It said no food or drinks inside.

    Well please educate me and the rest of us, why is that extra ground there on the battery terminal? It's on all my bikes and trucks, seems like a stupid way to waste money if it serves no purpose.

    One of these things is not like the others, one of these things requires a AA battery. The description details what the seller calls all three of these things https://www.harborfreight.com/circui...-pc-63612.html

    What you mean is you can't answer the question.

    What's silly is to tell someone who can answer the question that they are wrong.

    But it is true, your doubt in my skill set has no bearing on my expertise being useful to me.

    I said I have no interest in this conversation. Anything else is your imagination.

    Deleted the secondary ground as the main one proves to be just fine. Gotta get my lazy @$$ to just hook it all up and start the bike.

    Jeez what happened here lol. Dont care to intervene, glad I got the help I needed and glad I got a phone call to make the understanding easier.

    Earl when I'm running I can make a good steak, even though steak is already good, you know what I mean!

    Well, I still dont have 4 cylinders operating at idle, but earlfors suggestion was nonetheless needed. He said my carbs need to be synced, which, they seriously did. The bubble for cylinder 4 was as high as it can go and the rest of the bubbles were close to the bottom, now they are all sitting right next to eachother, I definitely run smoother, my idle knob was able to be lowered, and theres not much else to sat, it's just alot smoother

    Next I'll be swapping coil connections and seeing if the dead cylinder changes and after that if it doesnt I will have to figure out how to make sure fuel is in the cylinder, but I'll replace the spark plug before i check for fuel just to ensure it's nothing to do with the ignition.

    What RPM did you sync the carbs at and what rpm are you idling at? What were the results of your coil swap?

    They were sitting about 1200 rpm and that's usually my idlespeed but I try to have it closer to 1100.

    Didnt do the coil swap, actually, a new spark plug did the trick.

    While that's the best thing to have to be replaced, I kinda make myself look dumb doing all this to have to change a spark plug. The reason I didnt change it for a new one is because i swapped the plug leads and it didnt change the dead cylinder, but then i took another plug i had, grounded it to engine and checked for spark which it had, and put that one in the engine and it still didnt turn the cylinder on, so that's why it took so long to get a new one. I replaced the other 3 seeing as the old plugs were all in the same condition and I may even run a bit better when the other 3 are changed.
