Four things I can suggest to help with hard starting on our bikes. (besides well charged gel battery)
1. Get iridium spark plugs - part# NGK DPR7EIX-9
2. Research and do the ignition pickup coil gap adjustment.
3. Use your key switch to turn your bike off.
4. Clean battery(-) to frame and engine grounding points. Also clean battery(+) feed to starter.
I did/do them all. Bike starts immediately; hot, cold, everywhere in between.
