Fuel injection light

I need some help! My 2001 RC is dying I think. While riding today, I noticed my fuel injection light started blinking so I pull over to count the blinks but it never stopped blinking. I also noticed at lower speeds, the engine sputters and died twice. Once I got it back home, I tried counting the blinks again but once I got to 40+ I stopped. I was looking over the bike while it was running and felt the exhaust, the left side was hot and the right cold. Of course my book says nothing about this but it seems like its only running on one cylinder. Where should I go from here? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

All short blinks, and I just stopped counting at 40. I did read about short blinks vs long blinks. They were all short with like 2-3 seconds between blinks.

Didn't have a chance to work on the bike yesterday but I was going to try what you suggested but the light never came on. I let the bike idle for about 10 minutes, the light never came on. I didn't get a chance to ride it though. I did notice the right exhaust is still a lot cooler than the left one. Hs anyone ever noticed that before?
