Default MAP sensor blown? Safe to ride anyway?

Hey guys,

My F4i has started being a little troublesome on a certain issue. This video isn't my bike, but it's exactly what it does:

YouTube - 2001 Honda F4i fuel injection problem

The two blinks at a time of the FI light, according to the service manual, means a potential issue with the MAP sensor.

Pulled off the fairing, lifted the tank, reseated the sensor and vacuum hose, still no joy. So on a lark, I tried disconnecting the sensor altogether. After starting the bike again, it runs "normally", albeit with a single-blink FI code. It smells like it's running a bit rich (which makes sense but I'm not even really sure if it's rich or not since I don't really have a "before" smell in my memory), but otherwise ok.

So, dear friend, I pose the following questions to you:

Anyone seen this?
Do you agree that it's most likely the sensor itself?
Is it safe to ride with it disconnected until I get a replacement? (Ordered, but a 2 week wait according to Honda).
