Here is the method that I employ to clear a flooded engine.

1. Ignition off

2. Fuel tap off

3. If possible, drain the carb float bowl

4. Remove the spark plug

5. Twist the throttle all the way open and keep it open

6. Kick the kickstarter 20 to 30 times to pump the excess fuel out of the crankcase and into the muffler

7. Make sure the spark plug is clean and dry and reinstall it

8. Fuel tap back on (wait a little bit for the bowl to fill if it was empty)

9. Ignition on

10. Try kickstarting the bike your normal way
