You couldn't have picked a worse carburator for location to get to. The first thing I would do is to loosen the drain screw on the bottom of the carb and watch to see how much fuel drains out. Since you state that it is not getting any fuel I assume you have already done that. Next you will want turn off the fuel valve then remove the float bowl (you can get to the phillips screws with a short shank screwdriver or a offset screwdriver) and again turn on the fuel valve to see if fuel is getting past the float needle. If fuel is not getting past the needle you will have to remove the carburators from the motorcycle and inspect the fuel passages for a blockage. I don't think you will have to go that far. Most likely the float needle is stuck in the seat.
