It's not going to run if it's not getting gas.
With gas in the tank and the petcock on prime, you should get gas to the carburetors. Open a drain screw on a float bowl and gas should run out the drain hose.
You didn't say whether the bike was running, say, last week or has sitting in a barn for the last 20 years.
Are the fuel line and vacuum hose connected properly? Do you have the air cleaner installed correctly?
