when you cleaned the carbs i assume you pulled the jets out and made sure that you could pass a wire through them (assuming you do not have any of the various tools used to clean out jets that is).

does choke engagement make a difference at all in how it tries to start?

yea on my 07 250 choke was pretty important...

i've learned on carb bikes if it spins but wont start try holding the throttle all the way open (worked on my cbr once)

as your cranking, if you can hear the engine slow as it reaches compression stroke, you at least have a little compression. There is a gauge to check for it.

If you think you lack compression, either leak check it with shop air, or if thats not an issue, put some oil or h2000(wd40) in it to seal the rings for a start up.(this works for cars that run through water too... without oil on the cylinder walls compression will not be made in any engine.)

Light main jet and pilot jets are cleaned right??????? Goot point here. I pulled mine and soaked in gas, then cleaned them with a torch tip cleaner. the were bad and made mine hard as to start.
