Dragster RR - Hot Start Issues

Hello, I have recently been experiencing issues with the bike struggling to start while it's hot. Does anyone have any experience with this issue? I can't find a lot on it and so I assume it may not be widespread. Thanks!

Have you noticed a clacking or cracking sound when cranking the starter.
How fit is your battery, have you checked battery connections.

Does it crank OK and not fire or does it struggle to turn over?

My B3 800 is hard to start hot. Fires instantly when cold but hot it cranks ar a good rate but doesn't fire. Unless I release the button after 3 or 4 seconds then it starts instantly on the second hit. It smells rich when it fires though so I'm assuming it's best not to over crank it. I'm used to it now.

I'm going to revive this thread for a second seeing as how I did a search and couldnt quite find the answer I'm looking for. 2015 dragster rr with a lithium battery. The sprag is going out on the bike (soon to be replaced) but I've noticed that riding in traffic when the fan kicks on and the temp bar is just over the midline, when I stop the bike for gas and try to restart, it cranks very slowly. Will start but its definitely nerve wracking. Is this a resistance issue from the battery, the starter motor/solenoid, or is it a fueling problem? Was hoping someone experienced something similar and was able to remedy the problem.
