Default Motorcycle gurus 1981 DR 500 problem please advise!

The bike is just hard to start. It takes about 12 kicks sometimes more, sometimes less. Once it starts and rums for 30 seconds you can kill it and it starts right up.
what might the problem be? Usually I am so winded trying to start the damn thing It takes me a few minutes to recover to enjoy. I am over 65.
Thanks for the help.
