88 vt800c issues

Ok, so here's the deal. When I first bought the bike it had a stumble when switching gears and getting on about half throttle around 3k RPMs. I noticed vacuum lines plugged and open vacuum Ports. It is a California model and had all the EGR LIKE components on the bike. I removed everything and capped the vacuum Ports that were associated to the California model. It ran wonderfully for about 2 weeks of daily driving.

It now falls on is face every once in a while and will backfire out the intake. Could this be a timing issue or something else?

Sounds like a vacuum leak. What model bike?

I'd start by rechecking all the line plugging you did make sure it's all sealed up. Soumds like a leak to me too.
