Default GSX-R 600 will not start

I recently bought a 2005 GSXR600, and while test driving it, it seemed to run perfectly fine. A day later I get it registered and I drive it around, and I notice that it wants to stall out in low rpms. I put some "Seafoam" fuel injector cleaner hoping that this is an injector problem (the bike had been sitting for about 3 months). As time goes on, the problem gets worse and worse, and it came to the point I had to start off around 6k rpms to prevent the bike from stalling out. Today I took the bike apart to check the air filter and spark plugs, and those seemed to be fine. Put it back together, and the bike would start, but immediately turn off. Filled the tank up to the top with gas, and now it doesn't even want to start at all. I'm far from mechanically inclined, so any help or suggestions would def be appreciated. Thanks!

Sounds like your fuel pump has taken a dump.

Yeah plugs had gas on them somehow, like an idiot I didn't even see that when I checked them out. But it ended up making them faulty and they were very noticable after the 2nd look. New battery and new plugs, runs great now. Thanks for the help guys!
