I am talking about my 01 suzuki bandit 600S. A while back I had an issue where a float must have stuck open and leaked fuel into my bottom end and cylinders. I then removed all the carbs and cleaned them. After that I could never get the bike to idle at the rated 1200 rpm it was either no idle then it would idle at 900 rpm and if I tried to adjust it the dang thing would jump up to 4000 rom on idle. So took them off again and cleaned them again. Only this time I took them completely apart (separated the carbs from each other instead of leaving them attached). Now the damn bike idles 4000 rpm not matter what I set the idle screw at. I have it back all the way out and still 4000 at idle. At least now it is consistent but I am lost on where to look to bring it back down to 1200 where it used to be.

Have you tried disconnecting the throttle cable? Maybe it is keeping it open from when the carbs didn't work correctly and adjustments were made. Just a wild guess.

I dont think so as I am pretty anal about putting stuff the exact way they came off bbuuuuuutttttttt it is surely worth taking a second look at.

check the butterflys. make sure you didn't put them in backwards.
do a complete bench synch...
look under each butterfly and adjust them one at a time until you get them all opening and closing at the same time.
Make sure they close completely.
