Ensure the float bowl gaskets are in good condition. If not, air can enter the starting circuit diluting the expected rich starting mix. Click to enlarge.

I'm in the full choke crowd, no throttle until the engine catches. I start the bike whilst seated and ready to ride, minimal stationary warmup. Idle won't be independant until it's a bit warm. Upon starting half choke is almost immediate, then it's off within 2-3 kms.
