Question about 1996 Triumph Adventurer
Ran fine until 8 months ago started running bad would not crank back up
Start with the basics, (****, Squeeze, Bang, Blow).
Check fuel is getting to cylinder.
Check Spark plugs by holding on cylinder head and cranking see if sparks.
check compression, should be approx same across all cylinders usually about 120-140 psi at a guess. I have had an older engine still running fine with 100 psi. (Workshop manula tells exact limits)
Check exhaust is clear some idiot could have blocked it for a laugh!
check air filter is fairly clean. Oil type can be cleaned paper type are disposable. I would initial just hoover it if its a paper one.
If you have a spark and fuel and compression and it still plays up check the ht leads are in good condition, even dirty plugs can arc to earth loosing the vital spark needed. Older coils do tend to break down particularly yamaha ones! I do not know where triumph source there parts but i know it is from various countries.
Hope this helps a bit
