You are not, by chance, trying to start it with the red hot start knob pulled out, are you?

Is the hard starting in the cold just in the cold weather or has it done this since you put the cam in it. Does it start easy in the warm summer weather???

If its just since the weather turned cold its probably lean. Put a 2 size bigger starter jet in it and a larget pilot jet. That should help a lot. Also run a irridium plug in it. Way better starting. Yamaha sells winter formula motor oil. Its thinner and helps the engine start when its cold.

The starter jet is in the bottom next to the main and pilot. Its the short stubby little jet.

Give it a try. It works.
