Has the bike been sitting for a while? I have seen this with old gas turning to a varnish that gums things up. If so it may be time for the Seafoam gas treatment after draining the bad gas out of there and putting fresh gas in. I have never used it personally but I have seen amazing results on friends bikes. Lets hope it has been maintained by the previous owner and had the normal valve adjusts, plugs, air filter cleaning, etc.
