    Did you install an inline fuel filter (or change the one in it if it had one)? If not, the carburetor cleaning may need repeated. These bikes are known to be cold natured and in need of extended...

    Make sure the tank painting did not dislodge some internal crud and plug fuel flow. You do have an in-line fuel filter, don't you?

    Every rubber-tipped float needle should have a spring loaded tip that "springs back" when you press the float against it. If they are old, you might have to soak them in carb cleaner to get varnish...
