Could be. I'd check electrical first though it's easier. How does the plug look? I think it's unlikely that you have one carb suddenly not working right. They don't lose synch like that as far as I know.
Start with a plug check, then check your wires and coils, then your electronics. All you need is a ohmmeter/voltmeter.
GoodLuck Astro!

Sometimes the stock coils, when old, can develop a frustrating fault. A crack in one of the windings can exist, but when cool, the contact is still made. Once the engine heats up, like a thermostat, the expansion of the coil and its windings can cause the cracked winding ends to pull apart, with the resulting FUCKING frustration of cylinders cutting out....grrrrrrr.

In other words, you can have spark when cold, or just started, but it can go away once the beastie warms up and shits itself.

Good luck, just my two cents worth

Unless he had a freak piece of crud screwing up his carb (float needle or jets) and it decided to dislodge itself and clear up. If it doesn't happen again that's what I'd think. How bout a trying a coil check while they're hot?
Good luck. Hope you fix the prob
