With my 06, I pull the hot start and hold it open for 5-10 seconds before kicking it over. You gotta hold it open while kicking and as soon as it fires, release the hot start.

You have a hot start lever on your clutch perch on the handlebars right? Pull the lever and hold it for 5 or 10 seconds before you try to start it. And dont let the lever back out until it fires. Then as soon as it fires let go of the little lever.

It opens a circuit that lets a little more air in to lean the mixture making it easier to start once the engine is up to temp
