ry soaking in seafoam without removing them first. Get a hand bleeder bottle (with clear hose) kit for a few dollars. Turn of the fuel. Hook up the hose/bottle to the float bowl drain and drain the gas (due one carb) and note how much fuel was drained. Dump out the fuel into the gas tank and put the same (maybe a LITTLE more) amount of seafoam into the bottle holding it up higher than the carbs so the seafoam goes into the float bowl - repeat for the second carb. Hook up battery tender/charger, let set for a day or more, then drain and fill with gas.
Before attempting to start remove a plug from each cylinder and turn it over a little (make sure the spark plugs are not hooked up) to make sure gas didn’t fill the cylinders.
It doesn’t take much to drain the battery and a running bike does not keep a charge unless running at about 3000 rpm or above. So while you are working on the bike keep the battery charged.
If you can get it to fire afterward but still doesn’t run right, try to get it running for a little while, let it die, and pull the plugs to see how they look (wet/dry/grey/black).
