A very good chance the carbs need to be cleaned. Pull them/it off and soak in carb cleaner. A couple of other things to check are spark and compression, but my guess is gunked up carbs. You can try to spray with carb cleaner while it is still on the bike, but my guess is they need a better cleaning than that.

Sounds like the carb to me. Pull it off and soak it in carb cleaner for the recommended time. When gas sits and evaporates it leaves behind a varnish you have to get off since it clogs everything up. Soaking it in carb cleaner will do the trick. Note, the spray stuff will not work it is a special solvent you get at auto part store for it.
