K6 Gixxer F1 code concern

Got a K6 Gixxer and recently, the red light is lit continuously after startup and the F1 message is continuously being interchanged with the bike's temperature. Everything on the bike is stock with no aftermarket mufflers. Was wondering if anyone knows what the F1 message means????

Do a search on gixxer.com. Very common problem. It's the exhaust valve. Needs to be disabled. There's 1 wire at the computer you need to cut and you can also remove the servo and cables if you want to go thru the trouble....Assuming thats the code it's throwing.

While the SET valve is a common problem on a gsxr, you NEED to verify your error code first.
Go here to check out how to do it:

http://www.gsxr.com/showthread.php?t=1234



Second, IF it is your SET valve, it is fairly simple to remove and shouldn't take you but maybe 30 mins if you're slightly mechanically inclined.
See here:

http://www.gixxer.com/forums/showthr...=set+tps+fixes

And the YouTube vid:
(FYI, you do NOT need to remove the exhaust to do this, he only did to show what the valve does.)



If you find that it is your SET valve and wish to remove it but aren't sure how to proceed, I can come over and help on a weekend if you'd like.

There is not cleared codes on these bikes. If it's fixed the code isn't there.

Obviously. But something is wrong if the F1 is on.. I'm just saying that my bike has the F1 light that comes on, but it's been like that for a long time. So it's not that big of a deal. If it's a big deal I or my bike hasn't noticed

So you're just gonna wait for the bike to break down or stall or not start?
It's kinda true that if you've had the FI light on for a year of riding, whatever threw up the original code probably isn't a big deal. But if something else goes wrong that does need to be checked out comes up, you'll never know it until it's too late.

The FI light bugged me, even after I knew it was just the set valve so I got it taken care of.

Deff. check the code first, but willing to bet money its the SET valve like all said above. Took me about a half an hour to remedy it and that was removing the servos in the tail and all that. When you disconnect form the valve on the exhaust it snaps into the full open position and stays there. I wouldnt cut the wire though, its easy enough to just pop the wire out and tape it up

mine has been on since I added the full exhuast. I know there is a reset method by turning the key in some sequence. I did it before I just for the sequence. I ran mine at the track all day with the light on, no issues

F1 just means gixxer is #1. Just leave the light on, who needs it. Your bike will never break EVER. Who cares about sensors anyway?

I think it's telling you that the bike is fast enough for F1 racing.
