07 gsxr 600 red light and fi flashing

just bought a 2007 gsxr 600 and FI keeps flashing, is there anything these things are notorious for? is there anything i can check on it without hooking it up to a code reader? and also the red light stays on, looks like a water temp light. we anyways that stays on after the motor cranks up, but doesnt over heat. im gonna take it to Motorcycles Unlimited but wanted to see if there was anything i could do before going over there, thanks fellas

YouTube it. did mine in an hour.i didn't remove the valve. I removed all cables and servo and pulled the wire from the ecu harness that triggers f1 light. if its still on after that I'd take it in.

With cables removed, set valves in the open position at all times.

I believe the red light stays on when the fi light flashes, I put a full ti system on my 1k and it stays on now also, I thought at first that it might be temp or oil, but not the case, very common problem

stop guessing on what it is. jump the dealer plug and read the code(s).

you can in one hand and guess in the other.

if you cant figure out how to jumper the plug and read the code, PM me or learn to use google.

not trying to be a by any means whatsoever, but im getting tired of people guessing other peoples problems over the interwebs.

The best investment you can make is buying a repair manual, or downloading one off the interwebs (legally, of course).

youtube set valve removal. Pull the wire. If the light goes out its your set valve. If it doesn't its not plug the wire back in and take it in. Pretty simple to do.

I wasn't guessing a problem just tryn to rule out a simple common f1 code.

agreed, the set valve is a common problem.

however, injector failure, secondary tb servo/tps, etc are also common failures that result in a fi light.

diagnose the problem and fix it.
