flatslides tuning question

I have a first gen superbike that among other things has flatslide carbs. I just got the bike back from some motor repair work (front valves were replaced). It runs fine but doesn't idle consistently--namely it just seems a touch low.
Most bikes have a knob that just adjusts where the throttle stops so you can just turn the idle up a touch.
These seem to have a stop for on each carb. I tried turning both a consistent amount and it only seems to make it worse.
I'm wondering if just turning them consistently isn't enough and in fact I need to synchronize them?
I haven't dug into it extensively but is there a spot on the flatslides to attach carb sticks? Do I sound like I'm on the right track?
