Starts in one kick? So, no need to stress then. Your big ride isn't in jeopardy. That's your free therapy.
Your bike has auto-decompress, so unless that internal mechanism on the camshaft is broken, I wouldn't think it's related to compression. You can manually actuate the decomp lever without the cable, for testing purposes.
My bike only occasionally exhibits the symptoms you describe. It's always been after sitting too long in the garage and the battery being a little low. Not sure how you checked "battery shows full charge". Does this problem go away after you've been riding the bike for a while, then stop for a break or gas? A voltmeter doesn't check state-of-charge without a load applied.
You also said it is progressively getting worse (more frequent). That usually means wear or a failure, rather than a change you made to the bike (which would be an instant change). So, I don't think it's because you removed the cable.
Hope this helps.
