If there is fuel in the bowl and not getting to the cylinders, then a few things come to mind.
What is the compression like?
Could the jets still be blocked?
Are the throttle plates REALLY opening? Use a mirror and look down in the plentum.

These carbs work great when you ride the bike regularly and after correct storage. But not if stored with the carbs full of fuel to slowly drizzle out into the jets and such. So seems most likely that a carb rebuild using Randakk's video is in order.

Fred, from what you have pointed out, I would agree, rebuild time. I would bet the floats are "stuck" in the closed or semi closed position.
