Got the fuel on choke pulled out and I'm twisting the throttle as I'm kicking the thing over but she won't go..


There's your problem.


Leave the throttle completely closed as you actually kick it.  In a few cases, some bikes may like the throttle cracked open very slightly, but for the most part, closed.  Never twist while kicking.

I tried that first but never got so much as a fluff.
