flooding problem

So I was sitting at a gas station with some buddies gettin ready to leave when we all got the spontaneous urge to rev up our bikes (I'm sure you guys know how that is). So I grabbed my throttle and snapped it to about 10,000-10,500 rpms and let off. To my surprise the engine died as it was returning to idle. Holding the throttle open a little bit while holding down the start button made the engine sputter back to life making me think that it was flooded since this is exactly how 4 wheelers and things that I have previously owned would act when they were flooded. Upon reading up on it a little more in the owner's manual, I decided that this was indeed the case. I didn't think fuel injected bikes could flood that easily (if at all) so I was just wondering if you guys agree or if you have experienced similar problems.

+1 on the 8 inj.

But the engine could be cold and then that may happen, besides that you may have the idlle to low and uppon coming from high revs that may happen to.

Before squidly manuevers such as tagging the redline at the gas station, you must make sure the engine is warmed up. LOL:icon_lol:
