Generally,if a carb has no fuel,I suspect a few possibilities.
Especially of this has started to crop up after the bike has been running OK.
First.Plugged fuel filter or failing fuel pump.
Unhook the fuel line from the carbs and check fuel flow by the book.
Trash plugged the microscreen on top of the needle valve.
Or a stuck float.
If the fuel flow is good,its time to pull the carbs.
