Flooding engine
So, i just bought myself a 2008 v star 1100 on Saturday. I rode it around a bit and rode it home. It was running a little rough but I figured it was just cold and the choke wasn't adjusted right. I parked it in my driveway with the intention on riding later that evening. It started raining so I pulled it to my garage. I went to start it up on Sunday and it flooded. I took the plugs out and left and waited. A while later I put the plugs back in and it still flooded. Brings me to today and it's still flooding without starting. Both plugs are getting spark. I've tried fuel on and fuel off. I got one backfire but that was it. Any advice would be greatly appreciated since I've had bike issues with my past bike for 3 years and my wife's only requirement for this purchase is that it had to run.

The bike does have a spike air cleaner and some vance and hines exhaust. I'm not sure if the carbs were ever rejetted (how would I know?). I really want to ride this year! Haha
