2004 GL1800 engine cuts out intermittently

Post by Boblee »



Morning, bike has been running great. Suddenly, I’ve started having issues with the engine cutting out intermittently, but will go back to normal running after a second or 2. The FI light flashes corresponding to cutting out, and then goes out. I have tried the kickstand method of isolation, but get no codes.
Where do I go from here. How do you perform the under seat FI check, and will it give different results.
Thanks

Start it and tap on the top of the kill switch. If it even hiccups, the switch needs exercised to wipe off the crud on its contacts. Cycle it fully in both directions about 50 times and try it again.
