Just wanted to second William's opinion, most likely carbs. Dirt and crud collect and leaks do develop. That would also be my first guess with ignition second after eliminating the carbs. Normally if problems develop after a bike's been sitting awhile it's more likely to be carburetion problems rather than ignition troubles. Ignition problems tend to develop while the engine is in use since that's when heat and electrical stress affect the components. Carbs on the other hand are kayoed by chemical action and dirt. Both happen best when gas just sits in passages to corrode and dirt can settle and solidify.
