The vacuum hose from the left cylinder head does cause the idle to do what you said. Surge from 750 to 1200 rmp. The hose gets hard and will start leaking. If your bike ran good for all those years and just started this you have a vacuum leak. The bike is over 30 years old and rubber goes bad with heat. Sometimes you can trim that hose back a little at the head and get the hose to seal up. Good Luck!
