Is this a Keihin CVK? The obvious thing to check would be that the
enricher circuit ("choke") is connected and working. And just a tip on
testing instead of "pouring gas" into a carb (especially a side draft like
your CV(K) is to use a propane torch as the source of fuel (UNLIT OF
COURSE)......clean and efficient....also a good way to see whether your carb
is lean or rich.

I installed a Keihin CV on my knucklehead and it runs great, just won't
start unless I pour gas into the carburetor. After pouring the gas in it
starts right up with one or two kicks. Once it is started and warmed up it
runs and idles flawlessly.
