First, you didn't open the drain valves on the bowls and forget to close them, did you? Other than that, it sounds like you floats are sticking open. Put the petcock on reserve and while either cranking the bike or sucking on the petcock vent,try tapping the bowls with a screwdriver handle. Just a couple of sharp raps may jar the floats into rising and working.



If that doesn't work, it's time to remove the bowls and see what causing the floats to hang up. It is about as easy to remove the carbs completely as to try to get the bowls off with the carbs attached.
