FI light turned on.. Help!

Well the FI light turned on today after about 2-3hours of riding. I wasnt riding it to hard or bouncing off the rev limiter. The light came on when I was on my way home, It's not sputtering or doing anything out of the ordinary except for the light. Could this just be an electrical thing?

And some more info: My clutch is slipping, not badly but I ordered a new one.

after cycling the key did the FI light remain on?

Keep an eye on it. I dont know off hand if there are known problems like exhaust flap faults etc. Next time the light comes on try to flash codes and check.

ok.. I heard something about connecting an orange wire under the seat to a ground and it will flash the code? not so sure about that though..

But i forgot to mention that the bike has an aftermarket slip-on exhaust and a PCIII. Also, I replaced the battery last week.

I had FI light coming on my ninja 14
Had to push both dash buttons to see code
Mine was code 23 which said cam position sensor
After many many hours of multiple people trying to figure out problem turned out to be loose ground wire in wiring harness....a plug where multiple grounds hook together
food for thought

My Honda's FI light came on my last trackday. My bike would just cut out at higher rpm's. I am pretty sure it was just a loose wire. We tightened everything up and so far it is running fine.

I dont know the specifics for checking that bike, but I'd say if it returns regularly w engine performance problems(should reset by cycling the ignition, disconnect the pcm for a while. If it goes away, a slip on doesn't need pcm programing.

check the exhaust butterfly valve actuator located under the rider's seat. it's a little thing that rotes about 90 degrees and then goes back to its original position when you turn on the bike. My zx6r FI light also uses to come on every once in a while and it's usually due to that valve getting stock.

I have the aftermarket muzzys actuator on there.. I've watched it rotate 180 degrees and its working fine.. But i did make a typo, It's actually a Full exhaust.
