If the engine is new, next time you get it fired up, while it is running, lean out the high speed needle by a quarter of a turn (to the right). Then you will let it idle for a while. Start with that, then maybe adjust the idle screw.

I would adjust the idle spd needle 1/8 inward and start wif the ignitor on for a few second before pulling out for cold start. once its warm i'll put it back to it original position. n did the same for which warm up start to my car each week. Everyone has its preferred ways to get the car start but maybe some other can giv u a better advice
