Perhaps there is blockage INSIDE the carb.. not allowing fuel to flow into the intake. Are the reeds in good shape?

How many times did you kick it over, did you try bumpstarting it? If my carbs been drained of fuel and has been sitting a long time it takes about 5-10 kicks to start but if the carbs full itll start 1 or 2 kicks cold. If I bumpstart it, it always starts easy.

Make sure the throttle is closing all of the way. If it's open much it will make the bike very hard to start. It also makes for a wild ride if you bump start it.
