You've probably already checked this, but also check out your ignition parts while you have everything apart -- especially the wires, plug boots, and plugs.  Ignition problems sometimes cleverly disguise themselves as carb problems.

I struggled with what I thought was a chronic carb problem on my GPZ for the better part of a year before I figured out that it was actually the plug wires corroding inside of the plug boots.  If you have a fuel filter, you should not have problems with fouled carbs.

I will resist the temptation you have provided for me to proselytize about my allegedly "Old Tech" Buell.  :-)
