New to group (Great Site) have a question about hard start

I have an 03 650 Green/Black with 5000 miles awesome bike. I am having a problem with cold starts on it . Do these bikes just start that way? It doesnt seem like the choke is working. Does anybody else have cold start problems and any solutions if so appreciated. thanks

Welcome to the forum...

I have to use the choke when I start mine cold, if your having problems check the connection of the choke to the cab, (they break easy), or possibly the mixture screw needs adjusting.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life.

You may be in need of a valve adjustment. Also adjusting the idle mixture screw to 2-2.5 turns out from lightly seated makes starting up easier.
