2010 450 Hot starting problems

Ok Im having a problem after the bike is hot with it wanting to start back up. When its cold it starts on the 2nd or 3rd kick. I have the less hit map in it. I ride 3 classes and theres time I only have a couple motos in between my next class and theres times it takes 10-20 kicks before its wanting to start. My 09 would start on the 3rd kick usually after it was hot and I didn't have to pull the hot start even. Anyone else having issues with this? If so what have you tried or found out? What works and what don't....

are you using the choke nob

Nope!!!!!

When the bike is warm try holding the throttle at 1/8 to 1/4 open when kicking. I can start my bike in gear by doing this!

I have found that once the bike you have to start it old school like the 2-strokes. Give the throttle a twist when you kick it over. If it doesn't start right up I usually do one slow kick to get right a tdc and than a big one.

2 things work:

1. put in nuetral pull out the cold start/fast idle knob and it should fire 1 to 2 kicks

2. Hold throttle slightly open while kicking, nuetral works better but will start in gear
