You want to find TDC first (Where you can not move the kick) then use decomp and go just pass this (an inch or two) let go of decomp and bring kick back to the top and then give it a good full kick right down to the pegs. It should then start first kick. Remember you will not need choke if the bike is warm although you may need to use hot start.

One of the worst things you can do to a 426 is start it up just to hear it run. If you start it, you better ride it or else you will be eating plugs... Other than that, just follow gigans advice on finding TDC first, then pull in the lever and push and inch or so, then release everything and kick the crap out of it.
