I certainly wouldn't rule out a fuel restriction, either in tank where fuel drains to line, or line(s) to carburetors. When cold, more fuel required, plus once engine starts to run, vacuum from carbs may overcome restriction, as well as less fuel required. My guess is that heavy acceleration is a problem even when warm as well. Doesn't take long to check in tank to see if filter/screen in tank is plugged at all, as well as remove fuel line for carbs and use compressed air (carefully) to clean out line(s) as well as blow back into tank to dislodge debris at screen in tank, but if there is debris, remove tank and flush good. Any in-line filters should be replaced as well.
