Did you start to have a problem have you put gas in the bike?
What kind of weather (temperature wise) are you riding in?
If your riding in cool temp's your bike is going to take longer to reach normal operating temperature, maybe 3 times longer. Which means you might have the choke on longer than you would normally do which could cause the samething.
Don't put hotter plugs in the bike. If you do have a fuel problem (carbs), putting hotter plugs in it isn't really going to help any. If you replace the plug's use stock.
When the bike warms up, how does it run? What is your gas mileage like?
In cooler weather it's going to drop some. If the plugs were black, what did the electrodes look like?
Before you touch the carb's, try running some fuel cleaner through the carbs first. If that doesn't work, then you might have problems with the carb's and adjusting them really won't do you any good.
If the carb's need to be gone through, they'll have to be synchronize to make sure that they work together. If you set them up wrong,....you'll have a whole other set of problems.
Good Luck and let us know how it turns out.
