Default Suggestions

Yesterday, I filled up my V92C with premium at a station that was out of regular and silver. Rode the bike to work but failed to shut off the ignition thus draining the battery. Jumped the battery at noon, but bike hesitated and backfired so I rode it home put it on the battery charger until this morning.

Battery indicated full charge this morning so I started the bike, but still hesitated and would not idle. I'm thinking that the gas I bought was bad and will siphon out the old tonight after work, and fill with fresh along with fuel injector cleaners. Anybody have any other suggestions?

Perhaps there is debris in the tank and it is clogging your fuel filter?

Was this a gas station that does a brisk business, or pumps very little? If the latter, you could have bought low volatility gas. Were they taking on fuel from a truck? You NEVER want to fill up at a station that's taking on fuel. Yes, its possible there's water, its also more possible there's battery problems. Have you checked that the terminals are tight? If its an older battery, draining it and recharging could have eaten away at plate connectors.
Guess you're more careful about turning off the ignition now. Ma Nature is a tough teacher; she gives you the test first, then the lesson.

If you drain a battery sometimes it will kill a cell thus not let it charge back to full. So your system is trying to do 2 things at once. I would have the battery checked for free at a good parts store just in case.

When I bought my Kingpin it sat all winter at the dealership and drained the battery dead. Somehow that screwed up the tps setting and it ran like crap. It took three trips back to the dealer before they figured it out and fixed it. But, I would check the throttle bodies first, that will make it run rich and run bad as stated above. I doubt it's the gas, but I have had that happen on bikes before too.

Now, you'd THINK that's how that'd work, right? I went ahead and did it a a couple more times just to make sure I'm really that stupid.

Ma Nature is going to have you stay after school.
My routine--kill switch, release clutch (its in first gear), reach down & turn off key. Do that a few times and your synapses will get wired.

I left my ignition just once. A buddy of mine noticed and hid my bike. He let me think I was stollen up until I pulled my phone out to call the police. Hell, I would have done the same thing to him so I couldn't get mad. Needless to say but I haven't done that again.
