You might try changing the heat range of your plug. If it is carb. not FI you could get a manual and adjust the setting up a hair. Slightly, SlIgHtly more fuel at start up not a full turn or anything. Sometimes the slack on the throttle cable can help with this also. Again get yourself a manual and become a familar face at the dealership so you can ask your favorite buddy there questionsIt works I have learned alot by doing this

Hard starting and rough idle


The idle valve is the most common problem for hard starting in cold weather. I would recommend having it removed and inspected for contamination. Sometimes they can be cleaned out. If it has heavy carbon buildup, you may have to replace it. (if the idle valve is removed, the shutter inside should easily move when you rotate it from side to side and you can also look at it with a flashlight for a visual inspection.

Zl 600 1986 is hard starting


Ok, the correct proceedure for starting a cold engine is as follows, pull the choke fully on, and crank over the engine, DO NOT use the throttle when cranking the engine, when the bike fires and starts, slowly turn down the choke until a smooth fast idle achieved. The important thing to remember is, do not use the throttle while the choke is on, as this lets it **** in cold air, and makes for a harder start, remember the choke is there to restrict air flow, make a rich fuel mixture, for cold starting. If that does not work, then mabey u have a carby problem, make sure your choke is coming on.
