I have a problem, there’s a tapping noise on the virago 535 1996 the back cylinder runs better than the front and I took spark plugs out the back was black but dry and the front was black but wet, I can adjust the richness but there’s defiantly something wrong here also if I take the spark plug Cap off the front cylinder when it’s ticking over it’ll stay ticking over but off the back cylinder but if I do it the other way round the bike would turn off

Sounds valve related.

I can't remember - have you tested the compression up front? Also, can you put a spark tester or timing light on it to check for a spark signal?
