I have quite a bit of trouble starting my 07 t100 (4000mi) when it's cold. I recently moved from Colorado (6000ft) to missouri, and getting the bike started seems to actually be more difficult at the lower elevation (weird, I know...). I've run the battery completely out trying to get it started. The bike is completely stock. The guys at the shop recommended changing the pilot jets to 45s. Any thoughts on this? Am I going to see any performance loss with the larger pilot?

Thanks for your help.

45's are way too rich. I live in eastern Nebraska and ride a '07 T100. I have stock 40's for primary jets. I pull the fuel enrichener (choke) all the way out, keep the throttle closed, and hit the button. She'll fire right up as long as the outside temps are in the 30's or higher. Colder than that and it might take a couple of attempts. You might need to adjust the pilot air screws. Mine are about 3 turns out.
