hi nl friday,
here is a trick i learned from a friend who is a great fan of V twins.
on cold starts he usually opens the drain plug to let the carb balancer / floater set. once a few drops comes out, open the choke then start the engine. right after pushing the choke back, twist the throttle to force the jet to spray out.
hope this will work for you.

This could be a variety of issue's from over choking, to bad fuel. Make sure your not leaving the choke on to long, as this can foul the plugs. Bad fuel could cause this, as water or other contaminents get into the float bowl and don't affect the enrichment ports due to fuel bypassing the float bowl. This would lead to the bike running worse as the enrichment knob is pushed back in. Last but not lease, could also be an electrical related issue due to the bike warming up and causing a short or open as stuff expands. I would change your plugs, then drain the float bowl into a clear glass jar to examine contents. if fuel and spark seems ok, you will have to look at electrical. plug wires, crank shaft position sensor, coil. It may take someone with the tools to test these components in order to diagnose the issue. If you see that the tach (if you have one) or lights in your display's flicker, it could also be battery related. loose ground. Many possibilities.

G'day. Sounds very much like you have blockages in the carburettors- probably the main jets & emulsion tubes.
You will need to remove the carburettors, diss-assemble them & thoroughly clean them.
I thought that this link may help if you want to do it yourself.
It will show exploded diagrams of them.
Particular attention to parts-8,9,10,11,& 12.
I feel sure you'll find part 11(main nozzle) will have blockages in the pin size holes in the side of it.
These are critical for proper fuel atomization. They commonly get blocked by a goup that forms in the carbies when fuel has been left in them for a long time.
I jope this has been of some help
Regards Andrew Porrelli
