Is it a opposed twin? They have fuel pumps, so if you have one, the diaphram is clogged up and needs to be replaced or cleaned, its the plate on the carb outside with 3-4 screws, be careful, little springs behind it.

If it isnt a twin with a fuel pump, you can buy a universal pump and use the valve covor pressure.

You could possibly relocate your fuel tank so that it is higher than you carburetor.
