Sounds like it is only running on 2 cylinders smell petrol runs raggy

Check, your spark plugs first, and if you have a spark at them. It can be a spark plug, plug cap, coil... I once had a similar problem with a broken spring in one of the cv carb diaphragm.

It starts ok but when im riding it seems like it some times is running on two cylinders instead of the three i have a 2003 trophy 900

Check for water in the spark plug well. 
Probably worth pulling plugs and checking/replacing them.
