OK.... good luck on the starting try. Let us know the results.
You say the bike sat for many years without being run.
If the previous owner just shut it off one day and did not run the fuel out of the carb that may be reason enough to do a good carb cleaning.
As I have said many times before and I will again..... A Mikuni is a very good trouble free carb.
