350X starting tips????

My 85 350X is a NIGHTMARE to start, especially cold start (not cold outside, cool engine). Most of the time when we go riding, I say screw it and tow-start it with another bike. It's even sort of a pain when it's warmed up. My carb is good and clean, I run 100 octane Avgas, and the plug looks like new. Any tips from veterans out there??? The motor and carb are all stock- never even been rejetted, to my knowledge. Kicking that sucker for awhile will tire ya out, I'm tellin' you!

Cycle the kick starter slowly till it feels like you have the piston at TDC, let the kickstarter ratchet back up to the top, and slam it!
