FI LIGHT

Postby GRAPEAPE94 » Sat May 25, 2013 11:32 am



Where can I find the FI light codes? My light came on today solid but when I stopped and put the kickstand down I got 1 long and 1 short flash. My owners manual does not have the codes in it.

One long is ten and one short is one, so the code would be 11, which would be either poor connections at the VS sensor or corroded connections.

From the Service Manual, this is the procedure to check the VS Sensor.

It ain't about the destination - it's all about the journey

Here's all the codes.

If FI (Fault Indicator) light comes on pull over but DO NOT shut bike off. Put in neutral and put side stand down, RPM’s below 1500. This signals the ECM to send the error code to the FI light. Count the number of long and short flashes. This will give you the error code. Also known as Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL)

If you shut the bike off the error code is lost - sort of. It will be retained in the ECM but it is harder to get out. If the bike stops and the will not restart you can get the FI light to flash the error code by cranking the engine for 10 seconds. The FI light will then flash the error code.

Long Blink = 10 Short Blink = 1
i.e. long long long short short short = 33 check error code 33

Number of MIL blinks .Symptoms

Thanks Trike Lady for the info. The bike runs fine but ended up giving me a code 11. It will be a pain in the a.. to get to the VS sensor but will do it tomorrow as I am off for the holiday and had no other plans.
