Question 05600rr wont start!!

I recently purchased a 2005 600rr over the winter. When I went to see the bike everything was fine with it and it would start first shot. It sat in the garage for a week or so before I took it around the block for the first time (snow had melted) and everything ran fine. However, a few more days had passed and suddenly my bike wouldn't turn over anymore. It was idling and then died as if it had ran out of fuel (no its not out of fuel). The starter would crank but the bike would not turn over. So after reading a few different discussions on here I decided I would change my spark plugs to see if that was the issue before taking it in to get looked at. They were not the issue and I took it in. Once I got it to the dealership they de-carbonned the cylinders, added fuel additive to clean engine, and installed a new air filter. Bike was running and I took it home, rode it once down the street and parked it back in the garage (Friday). On Saturday I went out to the garage to get the bike and it started but then soon died out (same issue as before). I have no idea what is happening and really have no interest in bringing the bike back to the dealership for them to spend more of my money (that is if I should even pay them given that I didn't exactly get my moneys worth the first time). Also the FI light when I turn on the bike stays solid for a long time and then disappears, I know that's a code that has something to do with an air sensor?number 10 I believe? I know they were in around the air filter ******* around so I'm hoping they broke something and its not on me. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

My first thought was the battery. Winter time can quickly reduce battery life, especially so if you keep cranking it and then not riding long enough to charge it.

I don't understand the need for a new air filter, was it that dirty? How many miles were on it? Perhaps a clogged air filter resulted in rough idling and stalling and coupled with a battery problem made the bike not start.

Put a multimeter on the battery and try starting, what's the voltage reading?

How long is the FI light on for?

Battery is fine on it. Brought it back in and they say the plugs are fucked again, had them changed the day before at 22$ a piece before labor, but apparently they had some injector cleaner additive in it that needed to be ran through the system (something I wasn't told about) and when I ask how I'm supposed to ride an un-plated bike through a snowstorm suddenly I'm the idiot who didn't do something right? In my mind they gave me back a bike that wasnt ready for customer pick up given the time of year. Anyways so only option seems to be to change the plugs, again, and now they're gonna bill me, again. After a bit of arguing the guy said he'd go 50/50 which in my opinion is still bullshit.

I actually even had the battery on an industrial charger we use to jump start motor graders so voltage definitely wasn't an issue lol, as for the air filter, I think it was bullshit but it saved me driving 50kms to go check it out, they wanted me to change my break pads to, even though both fronts are brand new and rear definitely has a season on it still. I think I might have just walked into some dealership bullshit. Thanks for the input though guys, Ill be sure to consult this forum next time before I do anything!
