Likely more of an evaporation problem than a flow problem , as no problem after start .

Does your petcock have a PRIME position ? Try switching it there for start up .

If no Prime , simply turn the petcock to ON for a minute or two before starting .

That will allow the bowl to fill completely and the motor won't have to work as hard sucking the fuel into the mix .
