"Winterized" bikes can suffer badly from stale fuel.It causes a patina to coat inner carb parts.Use some cheap Petrol treatment from a supermarket as per its instructions in a good few tanks of gas and you may be ok.If not it's a carb strip and service IMHO.

Also get a can of carb/brake cleaner and if you can get the float bowls off with the carbs on the bike(That gnarly inner screw is a beeatch so I have Allen screws in mine) you can spray up and into the Float needle valve holes to see if it will clear them.
