Sounds like you've got some problems in the carbs, you may need to remove/disassemble them and clean out any varnish/debris you may find. Also blow out all the fuel and air passages with compressed air.
I'd expect that this motor has sat for quite a while, that's a typical problem to see if the carbs weren't drained prior to storage.
The "choke" system on your motor is actually a primer which dumps fuel directly in the motor. So, you're only getting fuel in that way, and not thru the normal passages of the carbs.
