Engine miss on cold start.

When I start my AT cold I get what sounds like a miss in the left cylinder. Either like a misfire or sticky valve. After a minute or two it goes away. Anyone else experience this. The bike is year old and has 17000 miles on it!

no but since the remus muffler sometimes it takes 2 presses of the starter to get it going
also now it revs higher for a second before settling in to an idle but no miss yet
