I finally reassembled the bike completely, after the valve clearance check and carb rejetting, installed the tank and fuel lines and found I still had the same problem. It wasn't until I engaged the starter motor that the pump started pumping. I released the starter, waited for the pump to stop pumping and the bike started immediately on the second try. A quick ride around the neighborhood has revealed normal operation.
X2 did the same exact thing with the same result All is good!
