Any water in the gas? Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Any water or trash in the bowl? ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ). Drain all the old gas from the tank. Install an in-line fuel filter. You will need to clean the built up varnish from the evaporated gas out of the carbs.
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 all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the two screws on the outside throat of the carb and spray into the screw holes as well.
< < READ CLOSELY > >
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two screws down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each screw one and one half turns outward. Put the rest of the carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. Balance and sync the carbs.
I strongly suggest you to let the shop take care of the carbs. Cleaning can be a nightmare times four and doing the balancing and sync of the carbs sounds easier than it is. If you do the carb work then be sure you have a fire extinguisher at hand. I am serious about that.
Please rate this solution. Thanks!

Sounds like the plugs are fouled out, I would pull them and make sure they're about the color of a paper bag. If they're all sooty and wet you most likely have a rich condition. I would take the carbs out and clean everything and pop in a new set of plugs. I have a 87 Fz600 that was acting up until I cleaned the carbs.

this happens after they sit a while, get her started, get her rolling, put her in second gear, hold the clutch in, get her up to 20 miles an hour, hold a little throttle on and slam on the rear brake, this usually will free up the stuck friction plates. If not try it a couple of times, it has always worked for me, also if that does not work for you you have to take the side cover off of the engine (clutch side) and using a flat headed screwdriver, and a zip tie to hold the clutch lever back to the handle bar, place the screwdriver in between the clutch plates and gently pry them apart from each other, on your bike I believe you have 7 friction plates and 6 steel plates. ( if you have to remove the cover go get a gasket first).
