Needle valve and float in the carburetor is what has to let the fuel into the float bowl.

Remove the float bowl and see if the needle and float move. Check to be sure fuel is coming through the needle valve from the fuel line. The passage may be plugged or the needle seat may be swollen from ethanol.
