I did the same when I could remember. Even just running it down part of the way helped significantly. For anyone not sure what this means, turn you fuel valve off a block or two from home and let the bike die rather than killing it yourself. I think that alexd's theory that fresh fuel vapor helps the bike start may be correct.
