2011 1000cc stuck valve?

My prowler has had a valve sticking? One cylinder will not work. Max speed like 35 mph. Anyone know how to fix it? Thanks

Carbon build up keeping the valve open? I'd go with diesel racers advice first. Replace the plugs, check the spark plug boot for wear. Last option of a hung valve is to pull the head.

I took the plug out doesn't look bad but going to replace them. I'm gonna squirt some on blaster or something in there let it soak out the plug back in hope it fixed it... I don't really know how to pull the head...
