2001 CBR 600 F4 Solid F1 light

Hey guys, I'm another new honda owner transitioning from dirt trails and a carbourated engine to a fuel injected street bike.
I just brought a CBR 600 F4 back to life after almost four years of hybernation. After a fuel pump and injector throttle body replacement, the bike came to life immediately - it sounds great!
Here's my question: soon after the engine starts, I get a single F1 indicator flash. The mechanic told me to ride the bike a little and the indicator should stop. It stopped flashing and instead stayed illuminated. I've checked the coolant level, it's fine. There are no leaks and the engine temp is well below the max temp of 250. The next morning I went out, fired it up again with same results... first a single F1 flash - took it around the block a few times and then got the solid F1 indicator again. What else should I be checking for?

Thanks, Scotty

I would check for a loose or disconnected connector. The FI light is like a Check Engine Light on a car, just there to let you know that something with the bike is out of whack. Take it into the dealer and have it scanned, it should store the code in the computers internal memory, and that will point you in a rather accurate direction of where your problem lies.

If you put the bike in neutral and put the kickstand down the FI light will flash a specific sequence. You can look it up in the service manual to see what it means. I had mine get tripped when I had an F4i. It was due to the battery needing to be replaced, even though it would still start and run. If you haven't replaced the battery, I would do so. Good luck.
