How to clean carbs.

I'm helping a friend down the street and I've never done it..
the bike cranks but it turns off like if there is no fuel going through.. this bike has been sitting for a few years.

The 1st thing I want to have done is a carb cleaning.
I'm going to post a few pictures of what I think the carbs are.. and go from there.

Need your help to see what to do.
This is the 1st time I'll be doing this so we'll see how it goes.

Yeah. If that's the fuel feed than the carb should be attached right behind it. I take it y'all didn't drain the gas tank and fuel bowls on the carb. Add some fresh fuel and il probably start and run. Freshening up the carbs wouldn't hurt too.

+1 to fresh fuel and spark.

Start with the obvious stuff first before digging in yhe carbs. Not to say they don't need a good cleaning.

Wish I had time to come hold by beer while I watch lol

Fresh fuel.. Bike turned on and was running for a few seconds. Then turns off. Fresh gas was the 1st thing we did. Cleaning the tank all the way and making sure it has a good running battery... I'll post a video later.
Thanks

That pic looks like an enricher for cleaner emissions (don't quote me).

Try running sea foam through it if you can get it started, otherwise take the carbs out, remove gaskets, soak jets and blow carb cleaner through them, reassemble and vroom.
