Question about Honda Motorcycles
First thing would be to cheak the compression,has the bike been stood for a long time, if so the piston rings can become seized into the pistons and although it my appear to run on starter fluid sprayed into the carbs its not really running just firing.
If the compression is low then you will need to remove the head and barrel the determine why there is no compression.
I had the same problem on a gsx550 turned out to be frozen ring, removed carefully cleaned well and replaced and it ran ok.

you need good compression ( at least 90 psi , kicking it with the throttle open) , good crankshaft seals for sucking the fuel/air into the botton end, proper point gap and timing set for spark ( spark should be big and fat,if not the source coil is weak,, this is a flywheel magnito ignition and it needs no battery to fire the plug) if you clean the carb, make sure you also clean the choke pickup tube or it wont choke. also make sure you have the slide installed in the right direction ( not backwards and the idle is not set too high at first...compression/****-good spark at the right time-proper fuel/air ratio and it will run

remove all of the old fuel using a siphon bulb and hose. Put in brand new fuel and make sure the line from the tank to the carb. is flowing gas. if not clean or replace the fuel line

1ST CHECK THE PLUG IS IT DRY AND CLEAN IF ANY DOUBTS REPLACE IT.as spark plug might work good out but under pressure its a bit differant . or check the valve clearance on Exhaust'Ihad the same trouble with my Triumph 5oo years ago
