Sounds like possibly a bad stator.
I tried that, that's why I came here. When I grounded it, it didn't display anything even when the FI light was active. I'll see if I can try dealer mode #2.Don't need a laptop.Hold the the wire to ground and watch the fi light blink and count them.Keep the wire on the ground terminal continuously .
Downloaded the service manual from your site when I got the bike, has been a big help so far. Thanks.Here's the explaination from my website. I would suggest you download the self diagnosois "how to" as well as it explains the sequence to enter diagnosis mode.
Can't remember off hand, but I'm pretty sure that "dealer mode 2" is the easier of the two to do yourself (don't have my manual with me to check). Just to warn you, the grounding for two seconds then breaking/connecting and grounding continuously procedure takes a fews tries to get right (at least it did for me). Reading the codes displayed is also tricky, but they will repeat over and over. A good thing to do is have a friend with you can write down the codes as you're reading them, so you aren't trying to hold the ground, read the blinking light, and write numbers so you know you have all the codes.
Also, these codes will only show problems that are involved with the FI system. So, if for example, your stator was going/gone bad it would not make the FI light come on.
Hopefully you're able to figure out what's wrong and it is something easy to fix like a loose connector.
Thanks, FI light was on when I went riding today. I took off the seat and finally got it to dealer mode one. Gave me 2 long blips and 3 short. (Maybe 3/3?)pull the tank and make sure all the connectors are connected. If i am remembering correctly this code relates to a sensor on the air box. more then likely it is unplugged. if not there are ways to test the component.
Fan comes on when FI light does too. Sound familiar?Thanks, FI light was on when I went riding today. I took off the seat and finally got it to dealer mode one. Gave me 2 long blips and 3 short. (Maybe 3/3?)
Which doesn't make sense, since the manual says: Oxygen sensor inactivation, wiring open or short (Europe Models)
Possibly, one stays there longer than the other. 1 second vs .5 seconds. I just need to verify what the issue is. Seems if it gets real cold it has issues starting and the FI light comes on. I work the next few days, so when I get off I'll try again since I have to jet out early in the morning.Very easy to miss read the blips as short or long.
Completely agreed about getting a solid code(s); you're taking a stab in the dark without one and wasting your time trying to blindly troubleshoot. Perfect example: "Gave me 2 long blips and 3 short." This would indicate code 23, which isn't a code at all.Fan comes on when FI light does too. Sound familiar?
I need to get a better code so I can find out what the problem is.
Tomorrow, if the code pops up.Anyway, back to you. It's definitely shaping up like a complex issue, but sounds entirely electrical. When you have the time, pull the codes from the ECU and we'll start from there. Oh - and check that air filter. Seriously. Might be blocked, you never know! :wtf:
