Only one cylinder at startup
This problem has only shown up this winter, if the VN has been stood for more than three days.
One cylinder fires as soon as I touch the button, the other cylinder behaves like I've run out of fuel. Nothing for the first few spins, then it'll cough a few times, then it starts. Once its started it runs perfectly.
All spark plugs have got really healthy sparks, and are a good colour (a little rich but very close to perfect).
Once the bikes been run it works perfectly day after day, until its had a long break.
Its like one carb is holding fuel and the other is slowly draining off. I've looked around the carbs and there's no signs of external leaks.
