Help...Dummy Light

Ok guys, I take pride in doing most if not all my work on my bike myself. This AM- well Wed Morning, when I cranked my bike the lil red light by my tach came on and will not go off. In the odometer it says error F1.

So I check my "book" and it tells me there is a problem with the fuel injection system. Nothing else, no tips, no nothing.....

Help me please if you know anything about this. Heres my thoughts... bad gas? short in wiring? water in gas? **Noted I have recently had my bike painted, so my tank was off for three months. And its been on for 1 month since. Am I overlooking something?

Thanks in advance fer yalls help!

My '06 did the same thing... but its an easy fix!

The cables that go from the servo motor (in your tail-section) to the butterfly valve (in your exhaust) are twisted and are getting "bogged down", causing the FI code to light up... here is the fix:

Take off your tail-section, exposing the servo motor and the two cables that run from it. Jiggle, wiggle, move, adjust, etc. the cables until they are not bound up and they can move freely (I used zip-ties to hold them where I wanted them). You can tell its done right if the cables for your butterfly valve on your exhaust move when you turn on the ignition.

FI light shouldn't come on anymore...

Ride over to Pearville and I can show you how, if you're not sure.

The only other "symptom" I can think of.... about two weeks ago my bike wouldnt start. I had to rev the throttle and hold it about 1500rmp to get her started. When I would let it go she would die. When the temp got above 110 it didnt die again. I associated this with it being cold X2 days and I hadn't cranked her. Now that you mentioned it I think this is related to my issue now.

Any more suggestions?

the red light and "FI" on the dash is exactly equivalent to a "check engine" light on a car. You need to put the bike into diagnostic mode, it will display a trouble code on the instrument cluster, and you can look up what this code means to attempt to fix the problem.

^^^bingo. Often it will set the fault for the servo motor below. that can be eliminated simply w an online posted fix.

my bike will occasionally do the start-up and die like yours....my problem was the inlet air temp sensor in the airbox. wiggled the wires around and the bike was fine after that.

As far as the FI light, if the bike is running normal and its still flashing, almost guaranteed that its the SET valve. Inside the servo motor in the tail, the gears are plastic. mine stripped right out so i removed the whole SET system. Once you disconnect the cables that run down to the valve in the midpipe, that valve will snap into the open position and stay there. From there you just pull the pin out of the ECU and the F1 light goes away.

this will show how to put it in dealer mode and has all of the codes.....and since your riding a gixxer, sign up and chat with us

heres a handy write-up for taking the SET valve off.....i wouldnt suggest cutting the wire as they do in the writeup. it takes an extra 5 seconds to pull the pin completely
