I have also had it since though.I wonder if the auto decomp is stuck and just needs to be nudged. I've talked to some guys with yz450's and it happens to them also.

I note that someone mentioned it was the auto decomp sticking -- that's what I thought at the time and continue to think. If I bump it against the gears to move the piston, it'll usually start up on the e-start. It's like the piston got stuck at maximum compression and the e-start doesn't have the ooomph to move it. I'm not a mechanic so that may be totally off.
Unfortunately haven't been riding enough in the last 3 months to address the issue (just rely on the bump it a/g the gears and start it up method). Be interested to hear if you get a resolution on it.
