    This is my first bike every think is how it was when it was running stick needle height and so fourth. I got spark and fuel. It was flooding and then I cleared it out. Still won’t start I got a couple of back fires and that is it. I think it might be flooding. I could use some good help. THANK YOU

    The motor might be full of fuel if it's backfiring. That'll happen sometimes if you leave the fuel valve open.

    If fuel drips out of your exhaust when you're trying to start it, that's a sure sign of the motor being flooded.

    Turn your fuel off, pedal up some speed, drop the clutch and keep pedaling to blow it all out.

    And your plug is probably wet, so once the fuel is out, you'll probably have to clean your plug.

    to clean out the engine you can also take out the spark plug. then put a lighter up to the spark plug hole it will burn out all the unburnt fuel. then do the same to the spark plug.
