FI light came on..

After an approx 35 km almost full throttle run yesterday I parked my V in the garage.

This morning the motor fired up as it normally does, but I noticed immediately that it did not run in high idle as usual. No misfire or anything, just near to normal idling right away.

When I took off towards work I noticed that the red FI light was on. I restarted the bike and after that everything was back to normal. The warning did not come back, and the bike run as it should.

I am the original owner of this bike and have had it for almost four years. It is the first time the FI warning comes on.

Anybody experienced this? What could the cause be?

I will check for error codes in the ECU if this issue continues - how long do the codes stay before they are erased?

I got FI codes about 75 into riding the freeway. they cleared on a power cycle. got the codes hour later when I got back onto the freeway to come home about 15min in.
pulled over and again cleared on a power cycle.

got home and ran the FI codes - I got about 6 - but then I have pulled every thing apart and added a Powercommander 5 so all the errors flashed at me in numerical order. I don't know what caused the ones that flashed FI light while running on freeway. but I will now since I cleared them.

Codes will remain stored as long as you don't erase them or disconnect your battery... You'll likely find code 32 or possibly 62, relating to subthrottle sensor or actuator. Is it back to normal fast idle when started cold again?

The FI light will go OFF after being on, if the sensor comes back into range for any reason. The ECU will resume normal operation. However, the event is memorized.

To recover codes set in memory (Diagnostic Mode 2); KEY ON, touch the self-diagnosis terminal rapidly to ground more than 5 times within 2 seconds. The lead must remain grounded (after 5 groundings) for the remainder of the diagnostic session. The codes will readout exactly as in Mode 1.

CODE Malfunction

11_______ Main throttle sensor
12_______ Inlet air pressure sensor
13_______ Inlet air temperature sensor
14_______ Water temperature sensor
21_______ Crankshaft sensor
24 & 25___Speed sensor (24 then 25, repeatedly)
31_______Vehicle-down sensor
32_______Subthrottle sensor
33_______Oxygen sensor inactive (Europe)
51_______Ignition Coil #1
52_______Ignition Coil #2
56_______Radiator Fan Relay
62_______Subthrottle valve actuator (sensor in range but not responding)
64_______Air switching valve
67_______Oxygen sensor heater (Europe)
94_______Oxygen sensor out-of-range

To clear codes from the ECU, enter MODE 2, pull the clutch in for more than 5 seconds.

When I rode home from work cold start idle was back to normal fast and the light did not come back. I'll check the codes later but I think (hope!) this was due to my high speed ride yesterday...
Thanks invader - you're always here to help!

Has it been very humid outside? Avoid high pressure water sprayed onto throttle bodies when washing bike.

+1 The same thing happened to me the other day. Turned bike on made the FI noise I started it and began to back up and noticed the light was still on and my idle was funky. I revved it a little and it sounded like garbage. Turned the bike off restarted and everything was normal. Kinda weird.

I had no codes in Mode #1, but in Mode #2 I found the stored codes 13 (Inlet air temperature sensor) and 62 (Subthrottle valve actuator (sensor in range but not responding)).
I erased the codes and will see what happens. If the warning light comes on again I might have an issue but now she's running fine again.
Strange, isn't it....exactly the same behaviour as you experienced, IanThomas and ggg?!
