Mine is doing that... water got in the gas and everytime it sits over 2 hrs I have no throttle.

Gas sits ontop of water; so the jets got crud on them and the idle circuit works find but when I give gas it takes a while for the needles to get free wi th the gas flowing around them to start working.

... but that's mine.

some more info;.... What does it idle at? should be around 1150-1250rpms.

Did the bike sit up any after you had the carbs cleaned?
Have you been keeping Stabil and Seafoam mixed in with the fuel?
As Cali asked, what's it idled at?
I like to put the R6's around 1300 rpm.
