"Battery is dead but kick starts on 1st try ? ? ? "

In the world of STOCK Honda CB 350's this is not possible.
CB 350's use a Battery Excited Ignition system.

The battery MUST CHARGE the COILS.
The Charging System will NOT generate enough current to charge the coils by using the kick starter lever to rotate the motor.

hmmm, i was going by off what the PO said, but it does indeed start on first kick. i havent bothered checking the electric start, but maybe the battery isnt dead after all?

The simple way to deal with the cross over hose is to drain the tank down as far as you can.

Get an assistant to help hold the bike over on a sever angle or just lay it down gently.

All the fuel will run to one side.

Disconnect the cross over and cap off both sides.

Bring the bike upright and remove the tank.
