I'm 90% sure they do. Disconect the fuel line at the carbys(ignition off). put the end of the fuel line over a container. Switch on the ignition. Fuel should now be delivered. If not you could have a fuel pump issue or a blockage somwhere between the fuel tap and the carbies. Follow the fuel lines from the fuel tank.
Also if it does have a fuel pump as I think it does you should hear it run (a buzz) when you turn the ignition on. Hope this helps Andrew Porrelli

Yes, a dirty Carburetor can stop the engine from running.
Drain the carburetors. There should be a screw on the lower side of each CARB float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Is there any water in the gas? 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, clean it and re-mount it, (not all bikes have a water trap bowl). Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carbs to fill with gas. Try to start the engine. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetors from the engine.
FOR EACH CARB > 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.
FOR NO SPARK > Check the fuses. Next, check for spark but with a new spark plug. How good is the battery? Is the kill switch on? Does the side stand have a kill switch? Is it working properly? Tip-over kill switch on your bike? Check the operation of the ignition switch and all kill switches with a volt ohmmeter.
Check the wiring harness. Did a wire come unplugged? Are all wires clean and with solid connections? Any abraded or pinched wires? Is the bike in neutral and the neutral light is lit up? If no neutral light, check the neutral switch and neutral switch wire on center casing. If still no spark, get CDI system and coils checked at the dealers shop.
Please rate this answer. Thanks

THIS SOUNDS TO ME LIKE AN IMOBILISER PROBLEM, DID THIS MACHINE ONCE HAVE, OR DOES IT STILL HAVE AN ALARM, CHECK TO SEE FOR TELL TALE SIGNS OF HOLES FOR FLASHING LED

SOURCE: fuel problem
Check the fuel pump wiring for power, if there is power going to the pump, I'd say the fuel pump malfunctioned and has to be removed from the fuel tank.
I hope this helps.
