Exclamation Riding normally, then f1 & engine hesitation, then fine


im hoping you guys can figure out whats going on.
we are talking about my girlfriends 2006 honda f4i with 16,000k on the speedo and in pretty good condition. no wheelies, or junk. all street riding and no track. i just changed the spark plugs, re-cleaned her k&n air filter, changed her amsoil & filter, fuel stabilizer was added over winter, etc. Over the winter we decided to take the bike out for a ride and i noticed that under acceleration around 10kRPM it just died out, and the F1 light when on, i pulled the clutch and the engine died. then it did it just as we where riding back normally. so thats when i did all the above mentioned service. **i pulled the F1 code and it was the air intake temp sensor, i also changed that** and the problem is still here. i also checked the kick stand, and its fine.

now its warm out, and this problem is rare, but it still does it every now and then under normal riding when its cooler out. it seams that as we are riding, her F1 turns on, and the engine gets a bit stubborn, and if you pull the clutch it will die, but since we dont, the engine kinda is weaker, and then out of no where the problem goes away.

any advice?

Try taking a socket wrench and tightening down the battery cables really snug. My F4i did this for a while and it was because the power to the battery would be killed for a split second then come back on and using a ratchet and not a screw driver to tighten it down fixed the entire problem.
