Too many kicks with the fuel on will flood mine every time

Your float level is too high, or your float needle doesn't seat.

a gd starting procedure... softly kick it 4 times and then actually kick it hard... this clears out the compression

It takes time.. it took me 2 good ride days to get it down.. I can start mine first kick now everytime, even cold. I use the term cold loosely because I ride it almost everyday..
