It looks like your compression is too low (worn rings from dusted motor) Push starting spins the motor faster than kick starting and when hot the rings expand just enough to seal off. Before kicking a cold motor try putting in a squirt or two of engine oil in the plug hole to see if there is a difference.

2003 yamaha banshee it is very hard to start, when it finally turns on I have to hold the throttle if not it will just turn off,,

Have you check the choke position?
When you got it going does it rev up high immediately, if yes then you choke is stuck wide open.
Good enough?

Yamaha banshee will not start

Did you accidentally cross the spark plug wires?
Other wise its going to be hard to diagnose,
Do you have plenty of compression,
Are you getting gas to the spark plugs?
Is the air filter clean/new?
You will need a factory service manual to diagnose further if all the above is ok
