Miles ?
Have you had the Bike long ?
Has it been running without issues ?
Did it just not start one day for no reason ?
Any recent work done to the Bike either by you or someone else ?
That'll get us started ;)

Is the Battery Good? It should of had a new one fitted as a matter of course as it's sat for a while, Voltage drop under cranking is a common issue with starting as they CDI will require a min voltage before it will work.
I've had Batteries go bad on one cell equating to 10 volts and still spin the motor.

You may need to get the Carbs cleaned at some stage.

I got a new battery a couple months ago and I tried to clean the carburetor but the bolts are stripped so I couldn’t deep clean it

I assume you mean the float bowl bolts in which case you need to get inside and clean them as that is not going to help.

OK at least we know the Carbs are good now (Fingers crossed) Did you fit them back onto the Motor ? Or the Guy that cleaned them ?
You need to check your getting a Spark at the Plugs next.
