Logic indicates that you will have to downjet.  Just keep going down in size until it runs correctly.

What jetting and slides are you running at the moment ? Small individual or double filters with a back face close to the carb don't really seem to suit Commandos and make the carbs difficult to tune.

I found that slides with a larger cutaway helped to disguise the lower-mid flatspot but never got rid of it completely.

Do you have 850 cutaway spray tubes with the long needles ? Although fine with the big airbox, They will complicate things too.
