Had an identical set of symptoms. Had my mechanic rebuild my single Solex and it works like a champ. He took it apart and gave it a good cleaning. He said their was alot of gunk within the carb, possibly from a disintegrating gasket. No signs of any recurrence and it has been over seven months. Hope this helps.
