Fuel bowls must be starved, so could be sticky float valve. Wouldn't bother with carb cleaner, this is a carb strip down job. Easy enough job. Take your time, be thorough, use brake cleaner or carb cleaner. Dry and reassemble.
As you remove carbs, drain the fuel bowls and check for contaminants. Use a cotton bud on the jets, etc. Ensure you don't adjust fuel mixture pilot screws. If you do remove to clean, count the turns. Normally 1½ turns out from lightly seated
