This is probably dumb but make sure you're topped off with coolant

i just did   everything is good   im running engine ice in it

The only other thing I can think of is jetting make sure you're jetted for the right altitude, if it's running rich it could make it hard to start hot. Good luck!

I had the same problem. What worked for me was , yank the throttle one or twice, then pull the hot start and crank it. Otherwise it was 15 or more kicks to get it fired if it did at all.

Ok thanks guys. I'm riding Wednesday I'll try the tricks
