Testimonial: "thanks i know this it was finding it ,have sorted it ,was a coil braking down ."
Sounds like condensation has formed in the tank,SG of water is heavier so it falls to bottom of the tank, this fuel/water mix will not combust properley. Caution , it sould be drained off into a jar to confirm, from the fuel tap(on main and reserve might be an idea.) The carb bowls will need draining as well, as the fuel that there is, is sitting on top of the water. Although fuel and water dont mix, water and alcohol do,dso does fuel and alcohol. put a litre of Methylated Spirit in the tank, that will scavenge the water and resolve the issue. The RON of alcohol is lower , so will burn hotter, and "pink" therefore top up tank with petrol asap. long term the solution is to keep the tank topped up and no condensation will form.
Old fuel will show the same symptoms, especially lead free.

I had the same prob with my '94 Trophy, had to get a new starter clutch. Common prob with these machines. triumph mad an improved version of starter clutch which is larger than original so will need to have the seat enlarged with a special tool.

I'm going to say the carburetors are fouled out, changing the fuel in the tank, lines and filter are a good start but the biggest problem is in the float bowls where the gas has evaporated leaving a nasty scale. The scale is chemical deposits left for the evaporating gas and just closes off and sticks the carburetors from functioning. If you have all the other components in making the engine run, ignition, compression and proper timing then the only other is fuel. The best way to fix the problem is to take the bike to a qualified mechanic and have the carbs cleaned and serviced. To prevent this problem I use a fuel stabilizer before putting my bike in storage generally I don't know when this is going to happen so the last three of four tanks of gas gets the treatment before going away for a Canadian winter. This stabilizer helps prevent the scale from building up and is a whole lot less expensive to buy then paying for repairs.
