Default Don't try this with your s1000rr...

Don't try this... 1) Let bike sit in garage for a week. 2) Start it up, let idle for several minutes. 3) And then, rapidly twist the throttle. Instantly died. Wouldn't fire back up for the day.

I was able to repeat that problem. I believe my injectors may have been gummed up with stale fuel. Slowly rolling on the throttle prevented that from happening.

Next time, I'm just hopping on the bike to ride. Enough of this warming up while inspecting the bike. Also, this was the first time I neglected my bike for an entire week.

Hmmm interesting. I had knee surgery and let it sit for two weeks and a friend came over who wanted to hear it rev up. Did exactly what you said not to do and didn't have any issues, it just ripped and roared out of that akro like a pissed off demon!

Yeah you might wanna look into that further, I consistantly have at least a week in between rides, definitely not on purpose, there has even been a two weeker in there and it starts up fine. I still haven't put on my battery maintainer either which i need to do asap. But as far as idling the book says start her and go of course not redlining it

Gas doesn't go bad in a week... or a month. I've let my bikes sit from Nov to March (winter) with untreated gas without any issues starting or running because of gas.

Now battery issues are a whole different story. I'd check the battery voltage across the posts, cold and at idle.

mine sat from Jan-Sept. with 93 octane BP treated with seafoam, and at first she acted as if she didnt want to start. Turns out my battery tender failed me. After replacing the OEM with a heavy duty autozone battery, she fired right up and I gave her throttle while idling and she cut off as well but immediately started back up. I let it idle for about a minute and then went around the block and it rode fine....
