05 Bandit will not idle!

I let the bike set up for about 3 or 4 weeks and of course the gas went bad. So i took the carbs off, cleaned them out and installed a jet kit, figured why not,had the jet kit and carbs off!!!! Put it all back together and it ran terrible. I was rather unhappy with it so i pushed it in a corner and left it there before i took a sledge hammer to it! I fired it up yesterday and it seemed to run better after i adjusted the air screws but will not idle. Any body got an idea of what i can do to make it idle??????

It has a yoshimura slip on rs3, stock headers, and dynojet stage 1 jet kit. I also took the rubber boot out of the stock airbox.

Put the boot back into the airbox, it causes more problems with it out then gains you may see.
If you really want more power, nix the airbox altogether and go with the K&N pods filters.

Make sure your intake boots are tight, and there are no other vacuum leaks.

Set the fuel screws at the Dynojet setting, and go from there.

If you don't get it straight by tomorrow, give me a call at the shop and I'll walk you through a few things to check.

Also, since it sat so long, you might try running some Seafoam thru the tank.

Depending on where you are, I have a snyc tool to do the carbs and give it a once over.
