Default 1986 shadow vt500c no start

I have cleaned the carbs numerous times as good as I can. I'm pretty sure I have everything adjusted correctly but I cannot get it to run. I come from a family of mechanics and I have been a diesel tec for the past ten years.

With your background it is obvious that you know you need a good spark, good compression and fuel. Which one are you missing?
