how many miles on the bike? A riding buddy of mine had cold starting issues - turns out the valves were out of adjustment.

Intake Valves. I can almost guarantee that your intake valves are worn or need some adjustment.. Especially if it does this under normal temperatures but starts fine once warm. Good luck with it.

I think Honda recommends a valve adjustment @ 20K... Some people will get away with it and some people won't.. I think this is where we can argue about break-in methods. This could be a factor... Still saying the valves are the culprit.

Not impossible, but following instructions and having the right tools you should be able to do it.

if you don't feel capable of doing precision engine work (because that's what this entails) take it in to get serviced. Either that or stop riding, educate yourself on the matter by starting with basic engine operation principals, designs, and service and work your way up.
