Calif model klr's, cold weather/high elevation

2 friends were with me in Mexico. Both on Calif model klr's. It was very cold in mornings and we were at or above 7000' in elevation. Bikes were very hard to start. Turned over but wouldn't fire.....tried again after breakfast and they both finally started before battery went dead. Is there an answer for this? Day's later at a little lower altitude and warmer temps they fired right up. Something to do with Calif emissions?

Don't use the choke, high elevations seriously alter the fuel air ratio on the rich side of things. Also if the air filter is at all clogged that will only exacerbate the situation. try a fresh air filter and no choke and see what happens, I feel your pain, I live at 6100 feet elevation here in cheyenne wyoming.
