There is a timed cold start valve under the intake. It's a heated bi-metallic spring closure. Takes about three minutes. By passes the throttle valve. These get gummed up inside and will stick open. Hard to reach with out taking the intake off but with a 1/4" drive, extensions and a few flex sockets you can get to the mounting bolts. Use carb and brake cleaner on it. You can jumper 12 vdc to the pins and watch it close.

When was the last time you changed your timing and balance belts and/or cam chain and tensioner?
