hey Riders
after a 1 month sitting my 07 Vstar1100 is cranking but refuses to fire...
after several times at it gives i get a fuel smell almost like its flooded with any throttle being applied...

the battery is fully charged.

i'm guessing spark plugs but would like a couple suggestions before i starting tearing it apart...

Thanks for any and all suggestions

Take a look under the carbs with a flashlight. If there is gas puddled there, likely the floats are stuck. The gas just pours out the overflow on the carbs. You can sometimes unstick them by putting the handle of a wooden hammer on the bowl and TAPPING on the other end with something. If they are stuck, it's probably time for a thorough carb cleaning.
