Which bike? You have two in your profile?

However, if the carbs are out of sync, that is a common symptom. Especially noticable on the 4 cylinder wings.

If it pulls smoothly from around 1500 rpm on up, most likely it is carb sync.

As severe as you describe it could be synch but also could have a dead jug. Sart up from cold and with a small squirt bottle of water monitor your header temps to see if all 4 ? are firing correctly.

Wouldn't the vacuum gauges reflect a dead cylinder?
Not necessarily--it would depend on whatcaused the cylinder to be dead. Not that familiar with the 1000,but out of sync carbs(as suggested) may be causingthe primary chain to jump around, and thatcould be what you hear.

Idle is a bit slow I'd adjust it up a bit to say 1050. Also check the timing. If its too early it will knock.

Sounds kind of normal and its just a bit out of tune.

Suggested idle speed for a 1000 is 900 rpm. With the carbs in proper sync, it'll idle smooth at 700 rpm
