the bike has a fuel pump because the carbs are at the same level as the bottom of the fuel tank. It makes a sound like quiet Jake-Brakes on a truck for about 3 seconds when you first turn on the key:
Bbbbrbrbrbrbrbrbrr... When the floats are pressurized to a few PSI the fuel pump stops.
That sounds like your starter is not engaging or the engine is stuck. Can you turn the engine over with wrench on crank, left side cover (big slot, use a big washer to turn it off). The motor on this bike spins backwards, it spins in the opposite direction of the front wheel (makes the steering feel more nimble). Make sure you only spin the crank clockwise from the left side of the bike (kickstand side), or the timing chain will go slack and bad things can happen.
If the crank spins try push starting the bike. If it will push start, and the starter is still wonky, its the starter.
Maybe the solenoid is just stuck, if you push start the bike a ride it a bit, that may be enough vibration to shake it loose.
BTW, dont forget this bike has a manual choke, pull all the way out to start, and dont give it any throttle till it fires, then push it back halfway till it warms up (about 1/2 a mile down the road).
