Gas pooling

So I got my bike (06 Vstar 1100) to turn over, it only fired intermittently. Good spark. I pulled the tank and the airbox off and noticed in the front carb that gas was pooling into the air intake. Sounds like a carb cleaning/rebuild maybe?

If you have air and spark...that leaves fuel. Probably plugged pilot jets. Tear em down and clean em. Don't forget the side holes in the pilots and clean the mains while you're at it.
