Longer cold start than normal?

Hey guys, trying to figure out if my 2004 919 with 9k miles is taking longer than normal to start when its cold. I uploaded a video of me starting it, temps outside were about 75 F. Once its warmed up a bit it fires up right away, but in the video it seems like its cranking a bit longer than it should. Signs of anything? or normal for this bike? Also the idle settles on 1250 when the bike reaches operating temp. Also I should note that the bike has been doing some sitting with only 9k miles on it in 13 years. The last owner said he only took it out every once in a while. Do I just need to run a few tanks of gas through it to clear things up? Thanks

Starts up fine. Try using a bit of choke (fast idle knob) on cold starts. Nice lookin ride, silver? Also cool needle sweep. Mine doesn't do that.

I'm in Australia. I'm pretty sure the Australian/Asia model doesn't gauge sweep. Instead we have a stupid anti theft system, HISS. Coded keys.

Awe I want that sweep. My 03 doesn't do that. Mine does start up in about half the time yours did but the crank power and speed sound fine. I agree with Islandboy that you should use a bit of choke on cold starts. Helps it out a little bit.

Use the choke. Mine is the same. A fresh set of plugs, coils, and battery may help, but honestly, I think it looks normal.

Looks pretty normal to me. I would would probably bump the idle up just a bit.

Cool guys thanks for the tips, and confirming that it's normal. It has a new battery but probably still original plugs so might do those at some point. That's too bad the Australian models don't do that :P

I don't know about Australian models but my Wisconsin model doesn't do it either. Must have changed in 2004?

Illinois models don't either. The Illinois model, however, forces you to pay a toll to insert the key in the ignition. And Cook County tacks on a "Rev Tax" that charges you 32% of the last fill up cost every time you go over 1350 RPM.
