Needless to say, the next day I picked up two new NGK CR8E plugs, changed the old one out & it fired on the 2nd kick. I'm keeping the spare one in my tool bag so I can do a swap out on the ride in case this happens again!

With my 426, I hold the throttle wide open with the hotstart on and kick it over about 10 times. This clears any unburnt fuel from the chamber and header pipe. She always goes 1st kick after this. Alternateively push start it. It'll start heaps easier with a push than it will by kicking it. My procedure is to push the bike in nuetral, pull in the decomp, click it up into second then release the decomp after the engine have done a few revolutions. This allows the crank to gain some inertia, and greatly reduces the chances of locking the back wheel, even on sandy/loose terrain.

sounds like a plug foul.
just my experience, but if i kick my bike ten times with no fire, (and no obvious critical items overlooked), I go right for the plug.
Especially true since the awesome 450 cam mod.
