Remove the throttle stop adjuster and the air screw adjuster and spray carb cleaner in the holes.
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two adjusters down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster one and one half turns outward. Turn the pilot screw 1/4 turn counter clockwise. Check the float level. Before putting the slide back in the throat of the carb, move the clip on the jet needle one notch lower.Put the rest of the carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. Adjust the idle speed with the Throttle stop screw. This process should get you back on the road. A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

Assuming all other things are working properly(carb and ignition), check the valve clearances. Specifically look for any valve that doesn't have any clearance. This is very common, especially with bikes that have alot of time on them. If so, have the valve(s) adjusted, but keep an eye on any that had closed up. If they close up again in the near future, you'll have to have the valve replaced.
When the valves do this, they are held slightly open all the time and let your compression bleed off, causing it to be near impossible to start. If the bike does start, it will be much easier to start again once it's warmed up. But back to the same when it cools off.
