Turn off the gas and remove the float bowl. Remove the fuel line. Remove the float pin and float with needle valve. Do not bend the tang that the float needle sits on. Spray carb cleaner into the seat where the needle valve came from to clear out any trash in the valve casing. Spray the float bowl and interior of the carb. Remount the needle and float back in place and put the float bowl back on. Install an in-line fuel filter. The diagram below shows a 1994 carb Yours will be the same or close to it.

if you move the throttle linkage on the carb you will see which of the mounting holes rises and which goes the oppisite way. normally the front 1 is the pull and the rear is the push. do the same on the cables by twisting the throttle on and off so you can see which 1 goes which way. hope this helps

wiring problem. go to any mechanic for solve it, dont try to fix by yourself if you dont about it.
Sometime, it have problem with your wire. if you have modified your motorcylce with something that have use battery from your motorcycle, i hope it modifed properly, if not it will cause short circuit.

Testing with voltmeter to test wired that was damaged. Using relay for lamp also have their weakness. Each eletronic for motorcycle have calculated for standard. Adding relay and modification with carburetor, head , champ, will make little difference to their prefomance. Maybe it will more powerful, but it will reduce their lifetime.

You have probobly check these things but worth a good look.
1. Is the choke working correctly
2. Is there extra air getting into fuel mix? Air filter and pre filter in good order and not perrised, Are the air box rubbers sealing on carbs and air box 100% these tend to harden an draw back into airbox off the carbs.
3. Check the above then remove the air filter and clean all part in air box housing any dirt/particals removed check deeper into air box also as there can be residue build up there, remove the pre filter from top of airbox housing and clean replace filter ir required start bike and warm up do not over rev with filter element out , spay some carb cleaner up and into air box slowly adding throttle as you do so, do this several times refit with new air filter if required fit the top of the housing checking that the little rubber gasket is in tact.
4. Check also the petrol tap is working correctly the vacuum, may not be 100% causing your power lag/starting problem.

To remove the fuel tank, remove the seat (there are two bolts that hold the rear part of it to the frame. Then remove the single bolt at the rear of the fuel tank. Raise the tank just enough so that you can slide the fuel lines off the petcock - and slide the tank back, and off.
The problem you are most likely going to encounter are plugged up carburetors. It only takes a few months of sitting for the gasoline to evaporate and leave behind a thick, gooey varnish. This being the case, you will need to remove the carbs, completely disassemble them and soak all the metal parts in carburetor cleaner (don't put any plastic or rubber parts in the carb cleaner, they'll be ruined). Upon reassembly, blow everything out with compressed air. This is a big job, so I hope you're lucky and it won't be needed.
Remember, the three required ingredients for combustion are: fuel, compression, and a spark (at the right time).

Make sure you have a good ground on the coil and all wires are good. If all is good maybe a problem with the stator
