I am using a 45 pj and considering going back to the 42 pj since I have my air screw turns down to 1/2 turn. I think you are simular in altitude as I am so you may need to lean down your pilot jet. I also have an FMF pipe and silencer which is more free flowing than stock. If you are running a stock pipe you would be even richer. The cold air should reduce that condition somewhat, but I would be surprised to find that it is enough to justify the large pilot jet.
If may take more information to get to the casue.

My thumper acted the same way a few days ago, kicked like crazy and no start, white smoke out the exhaust pipe, I could only start her with the hot start button out and not the choke, had gas leaking out my hoses underneath. I would kick her 30-40 times to clear her then start over, she would run for a second or two and then die.
I changed out the plug and varoomm! No more problems lighting her up. Try the plug and a bet she will fire up and run like a champ.
