What's "cold" in Melbourne Oz?
I hear 47°C is considered warm.

Not sure if this will help, but I've found that, particularly in cold
weather, the bike (mine, at least) starts fastest using this method:
Turn on ignition (no choke)
Crank engine until it catches (usually only one or two revs)
Use throttle to keep revs up (slightly), while turning choke to about
Release throttle - engine will keep running nicely, with a slight
increase in revs as it warms. Adjust choke down until no longer
I only discovered this method after about 3 years of ownership, but it
works every time for me, even at or below freezing. Prior to my
"discovery" I had the same issue as yourself.

Never put off till tomorrow
what you can get someone else to do today.
