I have an 02 426, ussually my bike will start first kick, however, but if it doesnt, it seems like it floods up and wont start until i have to let the extra fuel out of my carb. If anyone has and idea, it would be appretiated, thanks

BK carb mod will usually take care of that. Have you done it on your carb??

Check your float height also. The BK mod does minimize that problem. Also I find if I always turn off the fuel and let it run til it dies, I never have that problem anymore. Not sure why but it does keep the carb clean.
