Bike will not start back up when it’s hot   General Discussion

I occasionally have that problem more recently on my '08 Classic.  Holding the starter on for a while (15 seconds or so?) and it usually does start (with choke off of course), albeit with a healthy smell of gas.  However, now when I stop for a bit with bike shut off I'm in the habit of removing and replacing the gas cap before trying to start, and it almost never happens anymore.

Both of these approaches are mentioned in the referenced article.
