Thanks for writing to Fixya.com.
It sounds like your observation about not getting enough gas may be right on target.
Is there fuel in the tank? Are the fuel taps open? Is the tank cap vent plugged?
Verify the fuel flow to the carb to make certain that isn't the problem. This sounds like the fuel taps are plugged or restricted. What are you doing with the throttle while trying to start? Nothing is probably best but some setups start best with a slight throttle opening.
Thanks for contacting Fixya and please accept the solution if it has helped you.

Sorry I thought the bike was a 1975 when in fact it is a 1982. I would suggest you check the points and make sure it is clean and adjusted properly. Regarding the carb, you can make 2 become 1 but if the parts will fit and bear in mind that air mixture will require careful tuning since it will not be the same as manufactured default. Back firing is often caused by faulty spark, plugs, coil or even bad ground to engine.Also before you consider doing any work on the carb, try to swap the points to a new one.(I assume it has a points engine due to the year of manufacture)
