Question one cylinder takes a min to fire up

Hi There
My Suzuki T500 is taking about a good minute to fire up one of the cylinders when I first start it in the morning, after about a minute the other cylinder fires up and then the bike runs fine . I have brand new iridium plugs in it. I'm wondering if this could be a point or condenser problem. I would just like someones opinion before I go in and inspect for point and condenser problems.
Thanks Steve

Check the choke linkage. My '77 had one dual tower coil and CDI so both plugs fired every 180 degrees.

Check to see that the enrichener circuit on that carb is clean and getting fuel. You can check for spark at the plug when cold, but this sounds more like a carb problem.

My Kawasaki Mach III does this periodically, usually if I set the timing up with a dial gauge it goes away.
