new rider from Mass

Hello all.
Just got my first bike last night. 01 Vulcan 750. 19k paid $500 for it. its been sitting outside for a while. going to start with oil change, plugs and new battery. the gas didn't smell all that bad because the previous owner put stabil in it but i dont think he actually ran the bike to get it into the carbs. inside the tank looks clean. is there a way to drain the carbs out of the old stale gas? i tried starting it tonight and it would crank, but not start. it seems that gas is also leaking out when i try to start it. it seems to be coming frmo the area of the center stand. any other suggestions because the bikes been sitting? thanks, Jim
