If you have a Power Commander on the bike you could have a loose wire on that. I was running on one cylinder as a result of a loose connection form TB to Power Commander.
 
If you haven't got a Power Commander...I'm stumped as i am a technical f**kwit...sorry.
 
Fusebox? Spoonz?

hi lads cheers for the help ive had to give up and take it to spr racing in notts as it had a spark and it was injecting fuel. They ran a commpression test and the front cylinder would only produce 50psi compaired to 200psi from the rear they think the exhaust valve has bent but i left it with them to strip the head off and have a proper look looks like that is the end of my trackdays for this year haha cheers anyway lads ill let you know

phil!
please pass some information onto workshop thats doing the work, sometimes the reason why the valve has bent, which it sounds like it has, is because the cam lobes have twisted. Make sure they compare the profile of the same cam on the other cylinder before they rebuild the cylinder, there is a special tool in the genuine kit to check this profile if theyve got one???
let us know dude!

cheers for the advice mate but yeah they rang me today to tell me that the cam shaft was also badly damedged and advised me that if i got a front cylinder head off ebay or a breakers they should be able to fix everything does that sound right or is there anything else i would have to get.
