Don’t know why but this is what worked, the choke didn’t help any but the bike was probably a bit rich at 4,000 ft.

1. No gas
2. Full Choke
3. Turn the idle screw in 1/2 turn
Put the piston at TDC (you don't need the decompression lever on any XR but the 600 IMHO) and kick it until it fires. Usually it will fire then die. Once it fires, turn the choke off and repeat above steps. It will light and the higher idle will keep in running until warm. Once warm, back the idle screw down and ride! Always worked for me.
