Both of mine do. I've used the kickstart maybe once when I broke the estart button.

If your jetting is done right the motor lights up in a fraction of a second like my 06 Husky510 and if you have a hot start lever on your handle bar like my 06 WR450 does you can hit them both and guarantee a quick start.

I have JD jet kits in both my bikes and never have a problem E-starting hot or cold but before I jetted the Yamaha it would take two or three kicks of finding TDC and kicking only to have to kick again for 15-20 seconds vs 3 seconds of continuous button holding.

I used to have to get up off the couch to turn the channel on the TV :banana:

Why do all the guys with kick start only try to make it seem like E-start is a bad thing? I don't think it is for everyone and there is nothing wrong with kick or E start. I would own a kick only bike if I was to ride on a track but I don't and E start is much more convenient for what I do and where I ride. :ride:
