sounds like sticky floats. tap the bowls with a rubber mallet when you turn the fuel on. may help.
and like Steve said. clean carbs, change oil, check float height.
if you just picked up this bike, make sure it has clean fuel or the carbs with clog up again. Fresh high octane and a good petcock screen (or small inline filters) will keep you from re-cleaning your carbs a million times.
