I know the later bikes aren't as prone to break the tips of the idle mixture screws off and get lodged in the carb body, but it might be something to check. The "no change" screwing the mixture screw in and out would lead me to check this.

Also, when you cleaned the carbs, were you sure to get that little jet that's in the actual float bowl really clean and free from crud?
