Don't be sorry. This is what Choppers Australia is about...

Sounds like you've thoroughly checked your carbs, but connect them to hoses and turn on petrol to make sure it IS getting through. If not trace things back until you find the problem.

I recently installed a tank that had resin and cloth covering the tap hole!

Another time I found a wasp nest in the carby, and another time when I pulled out the jets I found the passages above them blocked with corrosion cos they had been dry for so long. Your float bowl level may also be too low. Also... some models of XS have vacuum operated taps...

Sounds like your float needle may be stuck, check your float is opening (and closing) the needle valve.
