01 R1 carb problems

Ok so I am the proud owner of a 2001 Yamaha R1, it has just 2000 miles....thats not a typo, which brings me to my problem it sat for a long time and it won't idle, so i drained the old gas rode it a little while and it still won't idle. So I decided to clean clean the carbs, so I have everything apart the carbs are taken off, and I decided that I would get on here and see if anyone had any tips or tricks when i disassemble the carbs, adjustments, special jet tools etc. All help would be greatly appreciated. Here are the pics of my progress.

I had the same problem on my '01. I recently got back from a 15 month deployment in Iraq and my bike sat the whole time. When I got back the bike wouldn't even start. After taking the carbs apart and cleaning them, the bike would start but would not idle. (I could ride it though, there was a slight stumble in the lower RPM range.)
I finally got fed up and just took it it a dealer who told me the tank was corroded and needed to be re-sealed. The fix was about $700 total and I haven't had a problem since.

Hey, just out of curiosity, what's the diameter of the inlet side of the carbs? I'm tryin' to put individual filters on them and get rid of that intake box.

carb problem

recently got a 2001 R1 that has not been running for about 4 years.
I have cleaned the carbs (twis), replace the fule pump and yet, I get backfire as I ride the bike. the bike idle perfectly, has custom tail pipes and has the original jets.

Any sugestions?
