Hi and welcome to FixYa,
In the versions we have worked on, almost always, your description indicates too lean a mixture on at least one of the carbs (chances are the one for the front cylinder). Considering that it has not been used for over a year, the carbs would need to be pulled down and cleaned. Old/stale gas would have coated the inside of the carbs with varnish like substance. This would be blocking the ports, holes, jets, slides and definitely, the bowl, walls and floats. Other than the above, the fuel pump/regulator would also have to be considered.
Incidentally, I was made to understand that certain versions has had known issues with the carbs and a recall was done.
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
