Default won't run

a buddy brought over a 1400 suzuki intruder that runs a while then stalls out other times it won't start. seams to be getting spark so i thought maybe fuel. spun over and sprayed some gas in rear air box and rear cyl fired up checked pump and that seams to be working, also carbs seam to be getting gas cause i get gas out of bowls when i drain. are their any other things to check for........thanks.

Generally one replaces the fuel filter and pulls the carbs and cleans them and ensures the carbs are set to factory specs. Also check for loose electrical connections that might be causing intermittent ignition problems.

It's really hard to get a bike running properly without a service manual.

For about 95%, it is still hard even WITH a service manual!
