No Idle when cold 2009FI

I have attempted to search the old posts and can't come up with anything so far. I'm sure it's in here somewhere ....

Got back from the last Dune trip and following clean-up found that my 2009FI won't idle when cold. It also won't start without pumping the throttle and giving it some fuel. I believe there's a sensor in the mix that is out of adjustment, but I can't locate any info on it.

Can any of you provide info on the Probable Cause of Failure (PCOF) and adjustment procedures? Everything is clean and no wires/hoses are disconnected. I realize there may be several PCOfs to rule out as the troubleshooting goes along

I have a 2009 also amd mine did the same thing. I also noticed that the front header was running way hot. I adjusted all of my valves and everything is fine now. Valves were tight and not closing all of the way.

I go along with adjusting valves first.

Then I would check TPS sensor voltage and check the air intake sensor
