Yes. And hold it. Do not let the throttle move, or the accelerator pump will squirt fuel into the carburetor intake creating a rich condition. Open the throttle very slowly to that slightly open point for the same reason. If you’re having no luck, you can try opening the throttle fully. Hold it there as you try to start your bike. This is basically the procedure used when your bike is flooded. The idea is to create a lean condition as you try to start a hot engine, which is the opposite idea for a cold engine. Be ready to immediately close the throttle once the bike starts!
 

Good luck, and let us know how it works out!

So I tried this the other day and it worked most of the time. But it still worked better that nothing
