There are small hemispherical filters above each float needle valve. ie 4 in total.
If you have had contamination from the tank, then these may be blocked.

The only sure way to sort things is to remove the bank of carbs from the bike and clean them. As I mentioned in your other thread (why do we have a new one??), carb cleaning is the same thing four times over. It's not as daunting in reality as you may suppose.
