I'll suggest that it is your imagination. But yet it might be possible.
With a clean clear vent hose attached to the carburetor float bowl drain nipple, drain carb into clean glass jar. Check for water or sediments. Then stand bike vertical & crank the starter button for a 3 count to flush the float bowl some more. If no water or debris is found, close the drain screw. Crank the bike for a 20 count to fill the float bowl, pull the choke on & it will probably fire instantly. Go Ride your bike!
If water or debris IS found, check the float bowl air vent hose on the upper Left of carb, to confirm attachment. If air vent hose runs up along RH frame rail & air box, move it go down along the shock spring.
Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!
