CBR600F4

Got a problem with a 1999 CBR600F4 stock no mods, 33,000 miles.

Every once in a while out riding it will just quit. Can usually get it started again with full choke and hi rpm's and limp home.

After its sits a while it will start right up and run fine till it dies again.

Doesn't seem to be related to time ridden or temperature.

One of my buddies has a Ninja that does the exact same thing. Usually we attribute it to "bad gas", because we always limp it to a gas station, then seems to recover shortly after. Never could figure out the problem though.

My goal is simple. It is a complete understanding of the universe, why it is as it is and why it exists at all.

Pesky loose wire was my first thought.

New fuel pump fixed the problem.
