Idle stays at 2500 rpm

Hello to everybody and Happy new year .
I 've just overhauled my carbs, but idle stays at 2500 rpm, only after a long while it goes down to 800 rpm, if I unscrew the idle screw it goes down but it is too low and engine stops. What I did wrongly. My compression test shows 8 kg/ cm2 instead of 12, but it is the same for all cylinders. Also I made the cylinders sincronization with the four vacuum gauges, the four cylinders are equal but the vacuum show very low around 20 instead of 50. if I run the bike on the road she is wonderful smooth and I don't feel any engine problem but the high idle at 2500 rpm when i stop at the traffic light.
