Reinstalled rearsets and now bike won't start
So I just received my powdercoated rearsets (from Tripage btw!) the other day and reinstalled them last night. I started the bike up and went for a short test ride to make sure everything felt solid, and then parked the bike in my garage to torque the rearset bolts to the proper spec.
This evening I decided to go out for a ride, jumped on my bike and started... but no dice. I can hear the fuel pump prime just fine when I set the killswitch to run, but when I try to start the bike it continually cranks but never starts. The first thing I did was throw my battery on a tender, but it registered fully charged within 10 min... so it's not a battery issue (it's less than a few months odd btw)
After checking out the manual, I followed the steps for starting a flooded engine. The bike finally started but the RPMs quickly dropped and the bike died. Tried starting the bike up again with the throttle slightly cranked and the bike fired right up. I held the throttle enough to maintain 1.5k RPMs, but as soon as I let go the idle hovers at 1k and then bike dies. The bike fails to idle properly, adjusting the idle with the dial on the left side of the bike does not help.
I'm stumped... I have no idea why this happened all-of-a-sudden. I searched this site trying to find similar situations but nothing seems to help. Any ideas??
I have an '05 600rr with approx 10k miles, and I had the full 8k service less than two years ago.
