|Rob112o||Pick up mod did it for me. I used 2 razors, snapped off the handle and taped them together. That was the gap tool I used to make things easier. I forget what the distance was of the 2 blades taped together, .019-.020|

|JETHRO||maybe you had an underlying problem and the fuel tap solved it ?. anyhow I have done the pick up mod and all seems ok, so will see how it goes , not done hot start yet !!!.|

|Goofyfoot2001||I did it on mine and it didn't do anything. My bike didn't start behaving well until I did the tw200 petcock mod. I know it sounds crazy but everything Clicked after that.|

|SergheiS||I'm going to say what everyone else here already has: pickup coil mod & AGM battery. My bike use to not start after fueling up, & I finally gave in to do the pickup mod. Starts flawlessly every time now, and even easier with the AGM battery. Still have zero idea why these bikes behave this way...|

A good AGM battery and just giving it a tiny bit of throttle after hitting the starter solved this issue for me.
Most have found the pick up coil mod helps a lot too.

I moved down my pick up coils to 0.018", crack the throttle just a hair and it starts warm/hot every time.
Choke always makes my starting impossible except when stone dead cold. Even then, more than 1/2 hurts more than helps.

|JETHRO||hmm, They all do that, I wonder what really causes this ? its a pain in the ass , You can ease the symtoms as spock has suggested but I have never really eradicated the problem but look at it as one of those odd things that make these bikes great. You Just have to wait a while till its ready to restart ,but don't rush it.!!|

Some tips, in no particular order:
1) AGM type battery
2) Use choke after short stops
3) Leave throttle closed during starts (and use choke)
4) Pickup coil mod
