Irritated bike has hard time starting all the time

This bike is going to give me heart problems. It's 80 degrees out today and the thing will not start. I love it when it's running but damn I'm about to just give up on it. When it cranks only the front cylinder starts to fire but won't start for a good 10 seconds when the rear cylinder finally decides to fire. Has a new starter and I just killed the battery trying to start the damned thing. I want to get it running good but 8 don't know how much longer I can deal with this.

That's bound to cause starting issues.
I'm glad you found SOMETHING, and that you got 'er started.

clean your carbs, check your connector on your regulator, and you wont have those issues.
