Question about 1998 Suzuki GS 500 E
Did you check the diaphrams in the carbs while you had them off?
How about the boots that connect the carbs to the intake? Did you check to see if they were cracked?
Try spraying some starting fluid or wd-40 around the bottom of the carbs and see if the engine raises, sounds like you have a leak somewhere.

Tips for a great answer:
Here are the common cause of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle, it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and/or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving
