So, you are saying 'it's breakin time'?
Even though it's 65F I'd use the hair dryer or heat gun to coax the warm-up a bit on a new motor. The first thing I WOULDN'T do is start leaning the motor without a little heat in it. It may take 3 hands to 'spin-it', 'throttle it' and 'tweek it' all at once. Don't burn up your starter!
I've found that adding heat in the early start up moments saves all kinds of trouble. I have an engine that is 'cold blooded' and I even had to use a heat gun in L.A. and it was well above 65F. On a new engine it will help prevent the dreaded 'top dead center pinch stop'.
Back-off the needle a bit to let it have fuel, don't flood it......if need be, pull the plug.......cover the head with a rag and spin it through a few times to get a fresh run at it. Make sure your igniter battery is fully charged!!!!!!!! Check your plug!
