83 virago

My 1983 Virago 500 will run very smooth and then sometimes it will only run on one cylinder. I've had it at a bike shop on numerous times and they seem to be more interested in my wallet than getting the bike to work right. It seems like an electrical problem and someone thought it might be the ignition box which is a 500.00 item but can't tell for sure.

Wrong forum, this is something suited for Tom Bartco's small engine forum.

Suggest you pick up a service manual for the bike and go through the diagnostics they have there. The igniter or coil is likely the culprit.
