Sound weird as in how? I'd just go over the basics and follow the C.F.S rule (Compression Fuel Spark) and make sure those are all in check.
For some reason it sounds like the engine isn't getting fuel which you can test by putting a tea spoon of gasoline into the carb's mouth or by spraying engine starter fluid through it. If she fires up for a few seconds then good, you know she isn't getting fuel or maybe it's flooding. Check to see if you're fouling the spark plug when attempting to start it (it means you could be flooding the carb).
Not familiar with your carburetor, but in some cases you'll need to re-adjust the float needle inside of it. If it isn't adjusted correctly you could be starving it of fuel or flooding it. Then, I'd start from scratch with the mixture needles though, especially after a clean. Close the LO and HI screws clockwise until they seat gently. Then back the LO out 1 1/2 turns counter clockwise and try to see if the bike will start so you can begin setting your idle. Once you're happy with that the move to the HI screw and back it out 1 or two turns depending how the bike responds to W.O.T. And I'm sure you know how to set the HI speed correctly. If not then lemme know.
