Usually if you flood it (by overchoking), you open the throttle wide open (to draw in more air to lean the mixture) while cranking starter.
Beings you had the spark plugs out you could have cranked it then, and let the engine compression blow the excess gas out the spark plug holes.
You have 2 solutions : take out the spark plugs and dry them with cloth, put them back in and start the bike.
Or, leave the bike over the night and the excess fuel on spark plugs will evaporate.
If the engine is hot and you have this problem, just leave the bike for half an hour and start it.
Take out one or both of the spark plugs and see what they look like. If they are sooty or dark black and possibly smell like gasoline, then you have a spark issue. Might need to replace the plugs, or the coil or the CDI. It could even be a battery starting to go bad. If the plugs are a light tannish or brown color that the spark is most likely fine and you have a gas supply issue. Make sure the supply line to the carb/fuel injection pump is open. If that is fine you might have either a plugged jet or passage way in your carb if your bike is the FLHR or maybe a bad fuel injector or something going on ther if you have th FLHRI.

hi mate make sure you have put the correct amount of oil in and to check the plugs take the plug out and put it against the engine with it still connected and turn the engine over if it sparks ok then there fine if you want to go more technical get a feeler guage and adjust the cap on the plug to the manuals requirements good luck
Hi ..... Go through the above list, pay particular attention to fuel delivery ie blocked breather in tank, any filter fitted to tap or change in line filter if fitted. Easy to check, take off fuel delivery to carb (place container to catch fuel), start bike and fuel should come out a strong contant flow.
