About a month ago I dropped my bike and it slid about 10 feet in soft dirt and grass. I picked it up, started it....for the most part it runs fine. It is the cold starts now where I have the problems though. I changed the spark plugs, ran fuel injector cleaner, and still no luck. Finally we adjusted the choke valve on it which seemed to help but only for a short time. It is back and it takes several times for it to start and when it does it still idles rough for a little bit. I want my baby to be healthy again.....any ideas

What year R1?

Check and make sure none of cables (throttle, choke) were damaged. Also check the airbox for anything sucked in thru the nose of the bike.

I'm guessing its an 02 or 03 model because of the fuel injector cleaner that you said you used. Any mods done? Like Power Commander? The reason I ask, if you only slid your bike 10 feet or so, it should only affect the way it looks. I dont think your low speed wipe out is directly related to your starting-idling issue. If you have a PC, check to see that its functioning properly. Also, take HayabusaFiends advice and check the filter. Other than that, I have no other ideas. Hope you get it fixed!!

By the way, you stole my avatar!!!!!!
