I have noticed that as well. I used to get a heck of a work out getting the bike started and needed full choke. Now I have actually started it without even being on the bike - just pushing it next to me and poping the clutch while pushing down on the seat. You have to be fast getting the clutch engaged again as soon as it starts, but I could NEVER have done that before. Also, I do not need the choke to start most times.

I am only one tank into Opti-2 on a new top end, so the choke issue may change when I tune it up in a few more tanks.
