Default '96 Vulcan 1500 with One Working Cylinder.

Bike was running fine and then started running on just one...and of course, this bike has just one carb...

New CDI unit and plenty of spark on all 4 plugs, but the engine only runs on the rear cylinder. Front cylinder remains cold. From what I read, I shouldn't get a decent compression reading because of the compression limiter device, but what I get is 60 PSI front and 170 PSI rear with a wet compression test.

Anyone have a clue as to what is going on? Any and all ideas are most appreciated.
