    Have you checked for an intake leak?

    like already posted, start with the engine "trouble codes" & go from there...Is it carb or efi??(carb is easier of course)

    There is also very basic trouble shooting. Start and run the cold engine for around 10 seconds and shut it off. Very CAUTIOUSLY feel which header pipe is hot. The cooler, or cold one will be the trouble cylinder. Then it is either fuel or fire from there, either you have spark, suggesting a fuel problem, or you have a wet spark plug, suggesting fuel but no ignition. Then the deeper analyzing begins.
