your rich on the pilot, that's why you need the hot start without falling, and after you've fallen, well the hot start doesn't have a chance with even more fuel dumped in.
when you get it right, you will rarely if ever need the hot start on an upright machine.

Sounds like the engine gets flooded easily, however it looks like you know a flooded engine starting procedure. Normally how does the bike start when it’s hot? Have you checked your plug? How about the check valve on the vent tube coming off the gas cap?

If the hoses check out, pull the carb and give it a 'tilt' test.
with a full float bowl of fuel tip it both ways (left/right). If it runs out the hose to the right, but drips through the carb throat to the left, something may be plugged in the carb.
