Hey guys, I actually have an 02 cbr f4i with 11,xxx miles and I am having the same starting problem, but I will try the open throttle method. However, I got to my problem in a much different manner so any help or suggestions would be super appreciated, and possibly followed by a fruit basket or beer if you live in Maryland. So here is what happened:
-I killed the battery and main fuse by connecting the wrong terminals while jump starting the bike in the dark.
-At that point I bought a new battery and replaced the main fuse and checked all the other fuses.
-Put the new battery in and now it tries to crank, the fuel injection primes, but it won't turnover.
-I'm thinking it might also be flooded, but the oil light is flashing (which shouldn't be the problem because I had the oil changed less than 200 miles ago, but it has been sitting for a month).
-My buddy and I tried to push start it, but we haven't tried the open throttle method, so I will try that.
-I'm thinking it may also be fouled spark plugs, because I have read that there may be gas on them at this point.
Any help would be super appreciated, and feel free to call or text me at 404 704 6135 (georgia cell phone).
Thanks everyone - Noob
