Default FI indicator light

I have searched for this subject and got one hit. My question is has anyone "recently" experienced the FI light coming on and the bike still runs? When you took it to the mechanic was the situation more or less a reset or ???

My burgie is an '05 with approx 6K miles and until now, has been running like a charm and can't believe all of a sudden there is something "seriously" wrong with the Fuel injection system? Any similiar situations? thanks.

You couldn't find anything on "FI" because the forum only indexes words 3 letters or more.

An FI code can not be made to go away simply be resetting it. So here's what you need to do to figure out what needs to be done:
Go here and look at the instructions for the homemade diagnostics tester. The next time you get the code and before you turn off the bike, use the tester to get the code:

Then you can go here to determine what the code means.

Colchine,
Thanks for the quick reply, I asked my independent bike mechanic if he had this special tool "the diagnostic toggle tool" and he told me its more of a generic tool that he has that can do the same. I also pulled out and dusted off the service manual for the burgie that I inherited from previous owner and walah! the codes are in it so I can bring that manual to mechanic as well.

But now the question is can I ride this bike approx. 15 miles to his shop without serious damage to it? It turns over and runs but seems like its restricted on the speed? I guess I should just call the tow truck to be safe?

These codes relate to some pretty serious components. If the code were for a Pulley Position Sensor (for example), and you rode on it, you could do thousands of dollars of damage to the CVT. Some components / sensors certainly won't have that affect, but the PPS is the more common FI code and is responsible for keeping a lot of the CVT parts together.

You can get the code yourself, then decide how you want to proceed. But if you're not going to do that, get it towed.

Could the center stand switch be stuck and only allowing first gear?
Don't know if that throws the light thou.

The center stand switch being stuck would not cause an FI code.

This happened approx one ago, where the light came on and I felt restrictive power from the throttle and I quickly turned off the igntion and several minutes later after I cranked it back it up, the light went out. So it couldn't be the side stand switch (but just in case, where is it located at for future reference).

Now the light is on along with the restricted power.

The side stand switch is located at the top of the side stand. It is a punger type switch that is puched in when the side stand is retracted. It functions like the kill switch and keeps the bike from starting. It won't cause degraded power.

The center stand switch is also a plunger style switch. It is located on the right side bottom of the bike where the center stand pivots. It's purpose is to signal the computer that the bike bike is on the center stand. The computer will then lock the CVT in it's lowest ratio to limit wheel speed when the engine is running with the bike on the center stand. If it sticks in the closed position when you take the bike off the center stand then the bike will not upshift out of low gear when you take off.

Thanks Buffalo,

But as you described and what you said earlier, I'm in agreement, either of those would not set off the FI light, but at least I know for future reference if one of them is either tripped or does not engage, I'll have one more place to check why the bike won't start up.
