I think you're on the right track with the carbs. Gas has probably gelled in the carbs and you'll need to disassemble, clean and rebuild them. I don't think soaking the entire carb in cleaner will help - it's hard to clean your butt if you take a shower fully clothed. :D

See if Yamaha offers a carb rebuild kit so you'll have new gaskets - some of the existing gaskets/o-rings may not survive disassembly and if they do, may not re-seal on reassembly.
Alternately, you could pull the carbs and take them to a dealership for cleaning-rebuild. I had a 97 1200 and remember what a pain it was to rebuild the 3 Mikuni carbs.
