I just bought a 2006 V Star 1100 Silverado. It only has 5500 miles on it. It is a great bike but when I first start it up it fires immediately but backfires and sputters for a minute especially in the front cylinder. If I even touch the choke it would flood. After it warms up for just a minute it runs perfect. Any ideas on what might be causing this? The previous owner had Vance and Hines pipes put on and the carbs jetted for them at a local bike shop.
Thanks and any help would be appreciated.

Could be lots of things. I'd lean towards finding out exactly what jets they put in.... and cleaning the pilot jets.
