Does it do this even if you've been starting it the last few days, or after it has sat for quite a while? Mine is hard starting after sitting for quite a while. And takes a while to warm up and run without the choke it colder weather.

I have a 95 gpz 1100, low miles and runs very well ,i`ve noticed when it about
45 degrees f  it has to crank over quite a bit before it even thinks of firing
, even when fully choked . a friend of mine that had a ltd 1000 says that it was
common with his also,once it finds about three or four cylinders it starts and
warms up a couple minutes  it runs fine   ,my thought is is` jetted for
warmer weather   at about 55 and up it starts great        with the
choke fully on that is      i try not to ride it on days that cold anyway
,but sometimes you gotta an man i hate cranking on a starter like
that                 thanks  chris
