Question about 1982 Yamaha XJ 650
You didn't say whether you're getting fire. Did you take out a a plug, push it back into the plug wire, then turn the bike over to see if it's sparking? If the carbs need to be synced, it should still start, even though it would run very rough. If the timing is way off, this would also be a big reason it won't start. You said the carbs are clean, but you didn't say whether your getting gas to the carbs.
If you pull off the fuel line from one of the carburetors and turn the bike over once again, you should have gas bleeding from the line. If not, it could very well be your fuel line or your filter - or both. Gas turns into a sludgy mess when it's sitting in a vehicle for a long period of time. Your entire fuel system should be checked.
If you can please answer some of the questions above, we can move further on this if you wish to write me back. I hope this helps.
