Sounds more to me like you are boiling your fuel and vapor locking. I don't know how that bike is set up, but many bikes have one way vent to prevent fuel from spilling in an accident. Has the bike been apart lately? There is insulation on most bikes to protect the tank from excess heat. If it is removed the fuel actually begin to vaporize in the tank and won feed the carb properly.

Most likely the diaphragm in the fuel tap has a hole in it .The way your fuel system works is that, when the bike cranks and starts it generates a vacuum in the inlet manifold, a pipe from the manifold goes to the fuel tap. The vacuum in the pipe pulls the diaphragm in the tap away from the holes in the tap ,letting fuel flow past the diaphragm and down into your carburetors ( gravity fed).
If there is a hole in the diaphragm the vacuum will **** fuel through the diaphragm and down the vacuum pipe flooding that cylinder and starving the others.
I hope this helps.
