No fire in the front cylinder

96, I havenít ridden it in almost a year. I get it to start, but only if the choke is on full and kept on full. The rear cylinder is the only one firing. Eventually there is a puddle of raw gas coming from the front cylinder. I can pull the front cylinder plug wires and hear it sparking in the boot. I have replaced the front plugs, but still nothing. I am not sure if it is insufficient spark or some other problem. Any suggestions?

Sounds like bad fuel has gumed up carbs! By using choke(actually enrichment) you are bypassing the throttling jets. Read on here about SeaFoam! Might be an easy fix or poss a carb pull and clean. (not fun!)
