Problem is...the "filter" they use in tank can crack with age, and when fuel is delivered to the carbs, it's to a rail, so, you could have stuff built up oved time. You are right, one carb most likely won't kill the bike, but over time, silt builds up in the bottoms of carb float bowls. Eventually this can be issue is you have no inline filter between the tank and carb bank.
Another issue could be intermittant ignition failure, but what you describe fits better with fuel starvation...
You could also check the pump diaphram in the petcock if eqippped...they do rot and crack with age.
