If you have good compression, and you have spark, the only thing missing is fuel.

I'm thinking then a broken lifter, or valve not opening.
What was going on right before this issue?

I was riding down the road and on the way back it started acting up and I couldn't get over 35 but I just recently got started because it's been sitting in my brother-in-law's yard for a year-and-a-half

I adjusted the idle screw and now I can actually get it up to 50 or 55 but that's in third gear and it levels off it won't let me go any faster, and the top exhaust pipe that goes to the back cylinder still ain't getting that hot do you think it's still something with the timing or am I still not getting enough fuel to the back cylinder

Remove your air filter and squirt a little starting fluid through the air intake trying to keep the spray towards the bad cylinder do this while bike is running you should hear the bad cylinder start hitting, if so it's a fuel problem

Thanks for posting that.
I wanted to, but I'm a little leary when it comes to suggesting to other people to use that stuff.

I HEARD THAT the starting fluid is ok to use now that it is lubricated?

I was wondering why the frisbee was getting bigger........then it hit me!

I always thought the "I before E except after C rule was "weird" , but "Scientist" disagree ?

Garage
How many miles on the bike? When was the last time the valves were adjusted?

Sitting in a yard for 1-1/2 years.....any critters make their way up the pipe to build a nest near the head? Had that happen, was the front pipe though and it was plugged solid with bird seed. Had to remove the pipe to clean it.

You DO have good blue consistent spark to both plugs correct?
Spitting any raw fuel out of the cold pipe?
If you can find or borrow a compression tester, that would be a good thing to confirm...
