Brandon, may be a bad air/fuel sensor(the one on the top of the airbox directly underneath the gas tank... close to the tank bolts.

your bike pulling up any codes on the tach?

Dunno if that bike has an auto choke cause its FI.. but I had my choke stick after a crash once. I didnt notice till I started messing with the idle, for a whole day my idle was SO irratic that I thought my carbs were to blame. We have basically the same motor, but you have FI so this may not apply.

Pay someone to work on your bike you foo. Everytime you take it apart, it never runs. I had to fix it the last time........... maybe you need spark plugs

man what a waste for my 1000th post.
