This usually works for my 650 and is what my buddy does with his 600. I got it from a post a while back.
1) Turn off the fuel at the petcock immediately after you've dumped it
2) Engage the compression release
3) Hold the throttle wide open
4) Push on kill switch
5) Kick through 6-10 times
6) Close the throttle
7) Turn on the fuel at the petcock
8) Grab the front brake lever (this helps to keep your hand off the throttle!)
9) Release kill switch
10) Kick through as above, but with a good smooth stroke.
11) If your bike didn't start, keep kicking with smooth strokes until it does

Pull out the spark plug and kick through the stroke a few times to clean it out, install a fresh plug.

Naaaawwww....Just hold the throttle wide open and kick it over a couple times. Works like a charm.

LMAO you guys. He's prolly sayin' "&%$#@! ?". :thumbsup:
Your all right, since each method has worked for me at one time or another. Though the 10-kick clean out usually works best for me. Maybe Honda will start putting pumpers on at the factory someday ?

All those ideas will work at some point in time....but what ever you do, turn off the fuel!...When I've laid it down, it's a mad scramble to get to the petcock. :thumbsup:
