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.

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.
