Default Motorcycle is not starting.....help!!!!?

I have a 1988 Honda VTR250 (interceptor). Its my first bike so I do not no anything about motorcycles. I got a new battery in it last month, if that means anything. Left work everything was good, stopped at a local gas station to get a couple things. Got back on my bike put in the key, turned the ignition to in and pressed the start button. It souded like it wanted to start over and nothing. Waited 30 mins tired it again and it almost started but did not. I did notice that when I pressed the start button the RPM indicator shot up to about 7,000 rpm but nothing just a buzzing soud.some extras: I rode home in 6th gear at 40mph( is that good or bad, approx 5000 rpm), petcock was tampered with from previous owner and it stuck to on. The owner said that it has never flooded on him.Could it have flooded? ------
