08 650 problem cranking

Ok, guys. 08 650 xt. was hard to crank but still started and ran fine. cranked better when cold but harder to get going when warmed up. decided to adjust the valves. Set the intake at .004 and the exhaust at .006. Still barley rolls over and now does not fire up. If I hold my hand over the carb air intake it cranks like normal but stops as soon as I remove my hand. had a buddy tell me to open the exhaust up more but I am looking to you all for your opinions.

Thanks in advance.

I'm not a small bore user and never had one so a big azz grain of salt here.

drop the exhaust at the header and see if your choked up don't suggest leaving it off long but to test it's fine

name is Gary or hey you if ya forget

2009 Prowler XTZ , couple things added here and there
'83 CJ7 / SBC + whole lot added here and there
'01 Dodge / Cummins / Dually, a ton of stuff added here and there

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us
