Cold start problems

Can you guys help with a little cold starting problem on my KZ750, 1980 
model?  If not, can you help me find a group that is into the KZs?

At 40 degrees, this takes lots of cranking to finally get one and then 
two cylinders firing; after that it will run by its self long enough to 
get the other two cylinders to fire as well.  A few minutes warmup and 
it is good to go.  Is this the normal behavior.

I know these years of bikes are all jetted lean and that makes it a 
little tougher in the cold weather.
