Default possibly time for a new top end?

my bike has been having trouble starting the first time of the day...if i keep it warmed up then its fine but if it cools off then its really hard to start. im almost positive that i need some new rings...after i get it running it runs great.

anything else it may be?

Not enough info. How much time on the top end? Air filter clean? Carb clean? Has it been a progressive change or all of a sudden? New or old plug?

It almost sounds to me like the lowspeed jet is plugging up a bit and making it hard to start cold. If your throttle is hanging open slightly it can make that happen too. Old plugs will do it. It always suprises me when people come online and ask for advice before checking the maintenance items. Times change and it is easier to ask now. Don't be me wrong, I like helping as do the guys here like Ernie that have been around the block or country for that matter.

weird thing...i went out kicked it 1 time and it started...im thinking it may just be from riding in the back of the truck and bouncing around the bowl may be draining out of the over flow or something from it...cause i can get it out of my building after it sits for a while and it starts first kick but if i take it to ride in the back of my truck then its really hard to start...idk.
