Really rough and noisy cold start

rij1
I just got my bike a few days ago and found this problem with it. When the engine is cold the starts and runs like crap and is noisy. It didn't do this the day I purchased it and I don't think it did it the next day. I made a short video of it to show what it sounds like cause its easier then trying to explain it.

Wow. That does sound rough. Does the sound ever go away when the engine gets fully warm?

I would guess that the carb sync was out if I had to,but I can't swear that's it.

Hopefully a DOHC guru will chime in soon.

Gorgeous bike,by the way!

Yeah, It goes away about 80-90% after a minute or 2.

Sure sounds like the carbs are out of sync.

ya, it sounds like your carbs are out of sync, but since it goes away after it warms up, can you look at your plugs to see if one is fouled/different than the others?

does the noise change if you pull the clutch in?

Much cheaper in the long run to buy the tools and do it yourself.  Depending on how much your mechanic charges it might be cheaper the first time you get them sync'd to just do it yourself.  It's a pretty easy job.
