Hi Jim and welcome to JustAnswer,Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...Initially and in most instances when/where the bike has sat/been in storage, the fuel or even if residual would have turned into varnish-like film that would have coated the walls of the carb(s), fuel lines, filters, pumps and just about every part of the fuel flow system. It would also have deposited and clogged the jets, pilots, holes and most of the small parts inside the carbs. The prescribed remedy is carb removal, dis-assembly to allow soaking and individual parts cleaning.It would also be to your advantage to check, clean and test the electric fuel pump and inline fuel filter as well as the tank cap air vent.
