If its completely clogged, you are probably better off buying a new one. You can try soaking it but don't know that it will completely remove blockage.

Ya know those stainless steel brushes that look like a toothbrush with a wooden handle?
Get one of those and use a pair of pliers to pull out one bristle. It will be just about the right size to push carefully through the jet. If it's too big don't force it, it is a calibrated orifice and you don't wanna mess it up inside.

I don't know the size of the pilot jet on that bike, but the metal wire inside a garbage bag twist-tie was small enough to clear through the jets of my cbr600.

That's a great idea! I work at a place that sells guitars and never thought to use strings.
