Re: [TriumphTrophy] New Member asking questions already!
- Welcome to the forum.
It could be an air leak between the carburretors and the cylinder head.
An easy way to check is to run the engine at operating temperature and spray
nearly any kind of (non corrosive) aerosol, I use Easystart, onto the joints
between carb' and head.
If the engine speed changes or it cuts out altogether, you have an air leak.
Make sure everything is tight and try again.
You may even be able to tell which cylinder is affected.

Reduce the idle by screwing the black knob at the LHS of the carbs
anti-clockwise, until you get a hot idle speed of ~750rpm. Also check
that there is still a little slack in the throttle cable. If that
doesn't work, it could ba a manifold air leak, or carbs out of balance.
Mechanic cure, if you're not confident to tackle yourself.
