Default Intake Boot install, bike won't start

I installed a new intake boot on my 08 JP and now bike is hard to start when cold. I have to hold the throttle open to get it to start. It also blows some white smoke when it starts. Smells like gas out the exhaust. It starts fine after its warmed up. I didn't have a starting problem before I changed the intake. After taking it for a ride I pulled the plugs and they were white from running lean. My original intake started peeling away from the aluminum base plate. Anyone know why it doesn't like to start when cold now?
