No that is not normal but it is common. What you probably need to do is sync the carbs so they are all pulling equal vacuum.

I have heard but on experienced this, but it might be sticky sliders. If they are not meticulous then it takes more vacuum to get them back down after usage. So something else to search on and see if others support the sticky slider possibility.

Sticky slides will cause idle problems.The slides MUST be absolutely polished clean and move without any drag at all.The slides rise as airflow increases through the carb throat and are spring loaded to return to the bottom.I've found the cap contaminated,the brass slides dirty,etc.Do not use any oil on the slides.The bronze bushings are referred to as "oillite bronze" and do not require and lubricant.After cleaning I have polished with Mothers.The slides will travel(without the spring)down the cap smoothly.
