Plugs are easy to check. You can hang a spark tester or a timing light and observe fire. On the side stand gives me the idea a float could be off, but rich problems tend to get worse as it warms up. Might not hurt to pull the breaker cover and check the points, they could certainly cause some popping.

1987 is going to be electronic, though, and not a GL1000.
