Change your fuel filter and drain all of the lines. I would even pull the plugs and turn the engine over a little. Probably should change the plugs, as well.

Me, I would syphon out all I can, fill with fresh fuel and add some Silkolene PRO-FST then see what she runs like.

Should I use some type of injector cleaner?

There shouldn't have been anything to clog up the injectors unless the fuel was literally dirty. Just try to get as much out of the system before you try running it again. It may run bad at first and even smoke a little, but it should clear up.

You can try soaking them in gas then use some emery cloth to clean them up. Be sure to reset the gap.
You're better off just replacing them, though.

Guys I can't explain how angry and frustrated I am. Let me stop here and apologize for this vent, but WTF!!!!!! I can deal with something going wrong if I neglected it, I mean even if I dumped the bike I'd feel better about it. All this trouble is over $10 of gas. If cleaning the plugs doesn't do it I might seriously lose it lol now I'm going to have to deal with this in a legal stand point, i have a young daughter at home and do everything I can to provide and now all I can see is $$$ out the window. As I'm sure with the rest of you, this bike is my outlet to the " real world", on top of all that the owner of the gas station told me to " go f*ck myself" when I went to speak to him, and yes I was polite at first until that came out. Now I'm dealing with the VP of the fueling company and consumer affairs ugh again sry I needed that lol

That's not a major deal man, it wont hurt your engine unless you run a whole tank on it.

just remove the ****, and put good stuff in and your golden.

EDIT: Before you let your mind get carried away with delusions of court cases and exploding bikes.... Let me tell you that a small amount of diesel will not hurt your bike, it merely has more lubrication and carbons in it. While long term exposure is really bad, short term is ******* nothing.

Chill pill bro... Chill pill... a mate of mine put the BP Ultimate diesel in by accident once, didn't realize until 2 days later, he had NO issues. Your bike will be fine.

I've had it happen before but it was my fault for grabbing the wrong fuel can. Just siphon it out and put in some fresh gas and ride on. A little bit of diesel in a gas engine isn't a big deal. The problem should fix itself rather quickly.
