From what you say about the starter spinning fast but "there is no sound that the bike's motor is turning over" I would suspect the starter first. I know you have changed it but you don't say whether it is an OEM starter. Cheaper makes can cause this problem. Next time it won't start try bump starting the bike. If it starts easily and runs well after bumping it should prove the carbs are doing their job right and your problem is not fuel related.

Have a look at this thread from another forum where a guy with the same problem explains how his starter proved to be the fault even though the starter had been changed.
