Question Hard starting bird

I left East Coast enroute to Alaska. Had the bike 6000 mile service in Kennevich, Washington. Afterwards I noticed the bike becoming harder to start when cold. It has progressively gotten worse to the point that you have to roll in throttle for it to start it. It seems like it hits and starts on one cylinder then picks up the other one. I just changed the plugs and expected an improvement. Got nothing. Bike has 15K on it and is still under warranty until April.

Any help greatly appreciated, teebee
