jthill524 Sounds like you could be flooding the cyl or your having a miss fire.
I remember someone here having unplugged the coil & got the wires crossed
(the red & green) But can't remember what problem it made & fixed.

it sputters surges back fires. tried wd 40 for air leaks seems like problem is in rear cylinder. when we reomove one of the rear plugs the bike settles down. but we can remove either on on the rear. the bike runs steadier.

clock152 also... in line filter?.. that was an add on!...still thinking its a vacume line though and marbeling will help as well.... power sucking emitions blow!....but also.. you said you added seafoam...well you could be gettign thru the "carbs butt ugly dirty" phase too...sucking a bit of ugly and burning it as you go... I know I seafoamed the crap out of mine when I got it... it smoked, sputtered, bitched, called me dirty names.. and finaly cleaned itself out and ran like new after about a tnak full...just saying... she is a quirky chick and you got to rub her right sometimes.

flitecontrol Those inline filters may have been on there to keep crud in the tank from reaching carbs.

Journey we removed the after market inline fuel filters..replaced fuel lines. replaced spark wires on rear cylinder. routed vent hose under seat. adjusted air screw. ran like a top. drove 1 mile same problems sputtering back fire and loss of power.. when i tried to turn off and back on voltage was low and headlight would not come on,

I was unable to find it until I was pulling the engine and doing some other things to the bike, but it turned out to be a hairline crack along a seam.

Failing that, double-check where your rear carb boot goes into the tank - there might be a leak there, or a crack in that boot (or in the tank where the boot gets inserted).
X2,,,, parts bike eques.. take it all apart.. be picky about how you put it all back together.. check everything make it run.. then do mods.

this is My first used bike. I remember now why I always bought new bikes before.
but this ha been an interesting Journey so far
East Alabama by any chance? Lance, a member here, has probably worked on, repaired and resurrected more of these bikes than anyone. If you can't get it fixed yourself, he is a great alternative and his rates are very reasonable. He's in the Atlanta area.
