yep, this....

If you want to be more "diagnostic" about it, you could open one or both of the float-bowl drains to see how much fuel you pour out prior to trying to fill the bowls (my supposition is that you'll see little or no fuel drain from the bowls). A lower accuracy evaluation could be made by checking the output of the accelerator pump, since it also draws & primes from the bowls.

As an alternate method to fill the bowls, you can try like a half-cap of fuel into each carb-throat (hold the slider outta the way with the throttle twisted open), then try to start the bike -- a few of those 'cycles' should get the bike to pop-off a few times and allow the bike to pull vacuum on the petcock as the pump runs (great on the roadside when you don't wanna jumper the pump and suck on the petcock and all that...).

Best of luck!
