I have just finished retoring a 75 GL1000 and finally was ready to fill the radiator and gas tank and give it a try. To make a long story short it starts and runs but the right side (cylinders 1 and 3) get very hot and the left side (2 and 4) hardly warm up at all. This is after about 5 minutes of running. Also when I feel the radiator fluid its not warm at all. I have good compression about 160 on all cylinders and a good strong spark on all cylinders. The carbs have been completely rebuilt with new carb kits and the fuel pump was spitting fuel from the buttom vent holes but I put some Yamabond 4 around the diaframe and seems to be working good now. Any ideas?

Any chance the plug wires are reversed?either that or there's no fuel getting through those carbs.And yes I did put the floats on upside down once on one side.They fit but cut the fuel off.

You have your cyl numbers confused. Do you have the plug wires hooked up with #2 on the right and #1 on the left?
