Welcome to the site Zeba! :)

The short answer is yes. All early big Yamahas seemed to be a pain to start. My XR650R can be a pain as well. There is a drill to starting the beast and it will take a Yamaha rider to tell you the drill for your bike.

I would suggest putting a post in the General Bike Repair forum as the mod there had a 426. He can probably enlighten you on the procedure.
