Mine will typically start right away when the bike has been sitting for any length of time or overnight. Keep in mind, for me in Arizona, that has meant 65-90+ degrees so far this year (so not exactly cold). However, when I am riding and the bike is warmed up it has been a mixed bag so far. A lot of times when I am on the trail and stop the bike while it is warm or hot, I have to pull the cold start knob out and it will crank right over and I can immediately push the knob back in and the bike will idle fine. This seems a bit random, but I would say it is 70/30 pulling knob vs not pulling knob out. Also, they couldn't have found a more cumbersome location for the knob located behind the frame trying to get at it with your gloves on............better yet, stalled on an incline trying to hold the dam bike up.
This did not seem to get better when I went from the stock ecu to the comp ecu. In fact, the change for me with a stock can and PMB insert was subtle overall, but noticeable with the recommended stock can woods map
included with the comp ecu. IMO, I think the only way to resolve this issue is at the intake or throttle body (maybe some air bleed screws) and it will not be adjustable in the ecu, as the manual
states the ecu only affects things above idle, which I assume to mean also the starting. May not be the case, but with my experience with two other FI motors, this seems to be a limitation in programmability and a shitty one at that.
