2001 GL1800

Post by Mooks » Sat Oct 14, 2017 1:25 pm



My 2001 wing started running poorly on and off the last couple of times out. It starts perfectly and runs smoothly for a while then out of nowhere it feels like there is trash in the fuel and the FI light comes on. I had a similar problem before and the dealership replaced the PGM-FI unit and a injector as well. The bike has been in the shop now for 2 weeks and they can't figure out the problem as the computer and DYNO won't work on a bike that age for this specific issue. They can't get the bike to malfunction so they can't figure out the problem. There's no problem with the fuel or filters. When the bike does start running rough I only need to turn it off for a bit and it seems to reset and drive just fine. Any suggestions????

Did you count the flashes on the FI ?

bike in neutral, kickstand down, throttle at idle

wait a few seconds and the FI light should start flashing,

Each Long Flash is '10'
the short flashes are '1'

so, 2 longs and 5 shorts equals 25

what ever the flashes are, look up the codes to see what is/was wrong.

Here is the list FI Codes:
MIL = Malfunction Indicator Lamp also referred to as FI

If FI (Fault Indicator) light comes on pull over but DO NOT shut bike off.
Put in neutral and put side stand down, RPMs 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.

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 then 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.

IF bike is off, leave on kickstand, in neutral, start engine and don't touch the throttle, the FI light will start to flash, and it will repeat those flashes until you do something. Like go for a ride, the FI will go away, and then later it will start flashing while you ride. At any time, just stop, and do the above, it will start flashing the codes again.


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