Default Triumph gone bad.

Here is the break down.

1964 frame, 1982 750cc left side 5spd motor.

5 wires total with a Joe Hunt magneto. Topped off with a Morris Mag adjustable timing mag cover.

Twin Mikuni VM round slide carbs.

My fearless chopper has been running flawless for 3 years.
Today, rode 10 miles and stopped for a drink. Started up the bike again and it was limpy, lumpy bad. I played with the plug wires and still nothing? Rode the bike home and it is aweful. At lower rpm's the bike jumps and lunges wildly. As if it goes from 1 cyl to 2 cyl and back to 1 and so on and so on.
NO back fire but it pops and farts from the left side of the bike as i lunge down the road????????????
If a deal don't end in a hand shake than it ain't a good deal!
