You might be able to just let it sit for a while and try it again. Alternatively, you could turn the petcock to OFF (if it's manual), then use the drain screw at the bottom of the carb to drain the fuel out. Use some tupperware for this as there is a good bit of fuel saved up in there. Once that's done, tighten the screw back up, turn the petcock to ON, and try again.
Thanks Neo, I'll try draining the carb. Sat all day and still wouldn't start tonight.
