Is this an SEI or carburated model? If it's injected put the tip of a screwdriver on the injector for the missing cylinder, hold the handle to your ear and listen for the click, compare it to another one for the same sound. If it doesn't click or sounds different
the injector may be stuck or clogged. If it has carbs open the drain screw in the bottom of the bowl and see if gas drains out. The float valve could be stuck if it is dry or the jets plugged if it has gas in the bowl. Let us know what you find.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

If it was running good when you last drove it, it may have gunked up a little bit just sitting there.

Might try Sea Foam and see if it will clear the problem. Cheap to try.

Does the missing go away when you rev the bike up a bit? If so the slow speed jets are most likely dirty.

If the plug is staying dry, it is a good indication that no fuel is getting there.

I agree with teach. Mind did the same thing and I thought it was battery but found out it was starter. No problems since. Oh welcome to the site
