To run, any gasoline engine requires compression, fuel, and spark. If you have compression, it has to be either fuel or spark. If it has compression and spark, it has to be fuel.

Does the engine turn over? If not, try push starting the bike.

If the bike ran when parked, 99.9% of the time the carb needs cleaned. I'd go back and go through the carb to make sure all is well. I don't mean just pull the carb off and blow some carb cleaner in the passages, I mean a total disassembly, inspection, and cleaning of each and every part. If I had a dollar for every recently cleaned carb I rebuilt and the bike ran fine, I'd have enough cash for a trip to Alaska.
