Due to the number of folks who had the same issue with hot starting, I'd be willing to say by doing the top 3 things on the list, you will have a high percentage of eliminating the problem.
When I purchased my bike, the PO told me of the difficulty he had starting the bike and told me his 'procedure' of gasing, choking & tongue holding to get it to start. After a couple of rides, I found myself doing some sort of 'ritual' and praying to get it to start right after I shut it off.
I did the MF batt, R&R relocate and iridium plugs- and I can start it anywhere, anytime. And, man it feels good!
Good luck and let us know your progress.
