bike had not been started in 10 years.but when it was stored the tank and carbs were drained.i put new plugs new battery and new fuel lines and it started right up.i drove it down the road and the yard for about half an hour and ran great.the throttle stuck a little bit but wasnt too bad.so the next day i go to start it and it wont.the chamber is not geting any gas.i pumped it and turned it over a hundred times and the plugs are still bone dry.the carb bowls have gas in them and the filters in the lines are full.so i think im getting gas to the carbs.if any of you guy could suggest anything i can try to get fuel to the plugs that would be great.thanks IMG_7271.jpg

You can check the fuel flow (2) ways.

1 - Fuel to the Carb Inlet.
Remove the Fuel Line from the Carb Inlet and turn the Petcock to ON.
It flows or NOT.
Proves the Petcock functions normally.

2 - Fuel PAST the Float Needle & Seat Shut Off.
Remove the Carb Float Bowl Drain Screws and turn ON the petcock.
Again it flows or NOT.
Proves the Floats are NOT Stuck of clogged.

If both are positive with flow - then you most likely have a clogged Jet in the carb and a Remove Clean and Replace is in order.
You only need to get the O-Ring Kits from a local Honda dealer.
The Brass parts don't go bad unless abused.
The is a great Carb Rebuild Post in the Fuel Section of the 350's.

Unusual that BOTH Carbs would do the same thing at the same time.
Could you have a Clogged VENT in the Gas Cap?
That would create an internal Vacuum and prevent flow.
