New Member, new question 1994 900ss

Hi, I'm a new member. I have a 1994 900ss with 5700 miles. Has been sitting for 22 years. I have gone through the carbs 3 times. checked coils, which seem to be ok.

when I spray carb cleaner into the rear cylinder carb is slows and may stall the engine. When I spray carb cleaner into the front cylinder carb I get almost no response. It might slow a little, maybe.

My sparks on my Ducati seem wimpy to me. My Harley Davidson spark is strong like a lighting bolt. It snaps and sparks crisp. My Ducati looks like a little girl is dancing ballet. the spark jumps around the ground strap. It sparks in the front, then the side, then the back etc.
No crisp sharp snap. No lighting bolt snap.

Any suggestions fellow Duckateers.
