The carbs should be synchronized every 20k miles. If you are having a roughness in idle then I would recommend the carbs being synched. If the problem is at higher RPM's I'd check to see if the motor has a harmonic dampener that can be adjusted. This often resolves vibration issues. I'm just not sure if this bike has one. These big bikes usually have some sort of adjustable dampening device internally.
I'd also like to have you check the motor mounts. This is a common problem if your bike has any rubber in the motor mounts. The rubber wears or even breaks and you often cannot see it until you actually try to remove the mount. Often they will fall apart in your hands.
These big motors all vibrate a bit so many of the manufacturers have realized that adding modified motor mounts is helpful.

Yes, the starter clutches sometimes get stuck on those bikes.
Then the starter turns at very high speeds and get broken.
Remove the starter from the engine ( that's an easy job )
Hold the starter in a bankwrench and connect a 12V battery to it. If the starter turns, he is OK, if not, replace the starter and his clutch system.

Make sure you have no wires chaffing against the frame or threads of bolts along the wires' path. Make sure your connections are clean and tight.
If you have a multimeter, take some resistance readings and also, ensure that all your grounding wires are in good shape and tighten any bolts or screws along the way.
Measure across the leads of the headlight, if it reads -infinity- (ohms) the bulb needs replacing, if you get a reading the bulb is fine and you need to start looking elsewhere...
