I noticed after installing my new slipons about 3 months ago, that my monster was a little harder to start when it was warm. I have to choke it a little to get the fuel "GOING". I guess maybe about 5-7secs of turning over will get it. When it is cold however it starts right up as soon as I hit the button? Weird ? Let me know. No performance changes.

Do you mean when the bike is warm/cold, ot the outside air temperature?

With slip-ons and no re-map or anything it's probably running leaner than the already lean stock setting.

I was having the same problem with my ride... it turns out it was running lean. $100 later (got new spark plugs too) it's good as new.

My wifes 620 had same problem but was rich. It needs to be adjusted on an EGA(Exhaust Gas Analyzer) to be accurate. Should be about 30 mins of shop time max.

My bike has a tough time starting when warm as well. I have noticed that after adding slip on's I am having to use the choke anytime my oil temp is under about 140.
That didn't use to be the case when the bike was new.
It does bug me, but I have a PCIII on order that I'm hoping will do the trick.
