Start the bike without touching the throttle. Leave it running until the fan kicks in, then start timing. Once it has run for 12 minutes, I usually give mine a minute or so over to be sure, turn it off.

Start as normal and the bike should have self adjusted. This will get rid of a lot of problems like yours. Not all of them but it's cheap and easy to do.

Cleared up a couple of minor tuning problems in the past, and is probably a good first step if you are having problems.
