89 yamaha phazer wont start

I recently picked up a 1989 yamaha phazer. i was doing some cleaning up because it was quite dirty. i started it up and let it idle for about 5 minutes and went ro spin the track and as soon as the clutch engaged it died. i started it back up and as soon as i touched the throttle it died. went to start it back up and it only sputtered and died. i checked the plugs and they're fine not wet or anything. so i checked the gas (hadnt done a thing to it or put any gas in since i just got it home) so i put some gas in and tried again and it wont start. i was thinking maybe its the t.o.r.s? heard of alot of other phazer owners having that problem. i just dont know where to look for the t.o.r.s. switch to plug them into each other.

Can it! Then you'll at least sound like your keeping up!

im just trying to eliminate problems so i can narrow it down and get it fixed. then it just needs a cleaning and maybe crank seals just to be safe.

TORs is the wires that connect to the carbs. Unplug them from the carbs and connect them together.
