Question Rough warmup

All since I moved to oregon I have not ridden my 919 very much it has 5500 miles on it. When I start it on choke a couple of times it has smoked out of the cans kind of alot.

Should I be worried about this? The fuel pump assembly was replaced before I left california but I rode it then and there was no issue. Could this just be the colder temps pissing the bike off a little bit?

I start it every other day because the first time I took it out here it didnt want to start had to crank it over many many times and pump the throttle.

Mine smokes like a high school hippie when it's chilly and damp outside. Once the bike warms up its fine.

Just play. Have fun. Enjoy the game.

Sounds like it's just condensation burning off (steam).
