Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Is there any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Is there any water or trash in the cup? Dump it and clean it. With the gas valve turned off, does gas still get past the valve? If it does, then you need to replace the valve. Re-mount the bowl, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ). Always turn the gas off when not riding the bike. If the valve will not fully shut off the gas then a leak-down condition can occur and cause gas to get to the exhaust pipe.
Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower side of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. Install a new stock NGK spark plug and try to start the engine. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetor from the engine.
Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the idle screw and the air screw on the outside throat of the carb and spray into the screw holes as well.

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. 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. This process should get you back on the road.
Please rate this solution. Thanks!

This sounds more like a lean fuel condition than ignition. If it was stored over the winter without the gas being drained or a fuel stabilizer being added, you'll likely have varnish build-up in the fuel system that is not allowing sufficient fuel flow. If your engine is fuel injected, it's likely your injector is partially clogged. If it's carbureted, your carb jets may be partially clogged or your carb float may be sticking and not allowing the needle valve to fully open. Fill the gas tank with fresh gasoline, but leave enough room for a can of Sea Foam. The Sea Foam may be able to break up the deposits and allow fuel to flow again. However, there's no guarantee and the fuel system may have to be disassembled to be cleaned.

on the carb you will find 2 screw one will be quite far in than the over thats the one you adjust this is the mixture screw which controlles the air and petrol together unscrew it say 1/4 a turns at a time and see if it improves if it gets worse screw it the oposite way and see if that improves good luck buddy

Has it been laid up for months? Did you leave any gas in it untreated? You may need to boil out the gas tank . Try a carb cleaner first that you add to the gas.Check the plugs.Are they black/oily (too rich / worn ring), Tan ( correct ).they tell a lot about the condition of the engine. Good Luck

to check the electric choke..take it/off out of carb & unplug it. then get 2 short lenghts of wires, strip both ends...shove one end into the choke plug teminals(one in each hole) .then put one of the striped ends of thewires on a charged battery(one on the positve & one on the negitvie terminals) .keep them on for about 5 mins & you should see the choke head extend (you could always mesure it befor you put to battery & check in 5mis to see if extened!!) this will tell you if its working!!...if its not working this will explane why you have trouble starting from cold!!..it also sounds like the main jet is blocked...this is found by taking of the float bowl (as you may know!)it will prob be the small hole up the middle of the jet that is made up with muck!!...try sticking a strand of a wire brush up/threw it...also it sounds like the exhaust is leaking round the maifold..will have to take exhaust of & check if it need a new gasket..or resealing!!(does the exhaust blow?. this is good way to tell if it is leaking(put a rag/palm of hand over end of exhaust & you should beable to hear it blowing. ...hope this helps....Howard
