Without the year of the bike I am hampered. Lets assume it is an older bike and has a set of ignition points and not a CDI model.
Pull the cover off the shifter side of the engine. Remove the spark plug then turn the flywheel so you can see the points. Oil on them? Dirt, or rust? Next check the main bearing. Do not rotate the flywheel but instead hold the flywheel firmly and lift it up and down, left and right. Was there any movement or was the flywheel rock solid?
I am willing to bet that the points were dirty and there was a lot of play in the crank bearings. If so, you will need new crank bearings and seals plus new points and condenser. The engine needs to tear down into about 75 parts in order to replace the bearings. The job requires some special tools to remove the flywheel and clutch, plus a crankcase separator the split the gearbox.
This is not a job for the beginner. I suggest you have the shop do the work and also that you spring for 3 more bearings and seals plus a fresh cylinder bore, new piston and rings and a new spark plug. You now have a brand new engine that should run well and last for many years. Please rate this solution. Thanks

No guarantees but try this. Pull the slide from the throat of the carb. Now move the clip on the jet needle down one notch. This will richen the low end mix. Two notches may be needed but do one notch at the start.

Clean the carb on the bad cylinder. It may have a plugged pilot jet. The bike has CV carbs. There is a chance that the offending carb may have a pin hole in the diaphragm causing one slide to open later than the other slide. This could also be the problem. With the air cleaner removed, look at both carb slides and see if they crack open at the same instant or if one is definitely later than the other. That will confirm or eliminate the diaphragm.
A top rating for this answer? Thanks!
