Mine would e-start 20% of the time with my first cam swap.
Grinding the pin fixed it

Yeah, just got in from the garage - it's tough to get started on the button when it's hot, no doubt. I was trying all sorts of different hot start/accelerator pump blip/throttle setting combinations after running it (by kick start) and clearing it out to see if there's an e-starting ritual that might work. I've gotten it a few times, but not consistently and the battery started losing juice. I'll keep working with it, but I was pleasantly surprised when it started pretty easily on initial start up.
After you ride it five times using the electric start let us know if you don't have any issues. Prior to changing my pin it would start only some times.

My advice is to avoice Hotcams due to quality and cam timing issues

The Hot cam does loose some low end torque on a dirt bike. I have some sitting in a box.
I went through (3) sets of YZ spec in/ex camsets and the third one was timed correctly.
The first two you could see the gear timing marks were at leat 25 degrees off....
In the end it was pretty much a flat track only cam, as all it did was give you a 8-10k rpm massive peak, and not much else.
Nothing like a stock YZ.
