93 900RR won't start

The last time I rode, it ran fine. Parked it a few months ago. It's been pretty cold here lately. It cranks over just fine, kinda putters like it wants to start, then backfires out the exhaust with a flame. Pretty sure I flooded it when I tried to start it, I can smell gas. Could the plugs be fuel saturated or do I have a bigger problem?

Pilot circuits blocked with fuel residue perhaps.
Try starter fluid.

Took Bladeracer's advice and used starting fluid. Fired right up.
