sounds like its the Fuel Injection Light (if its red)
if the light is always on (it should go off after 2..3 seconds (after the rev coutner completes its test cycle) then there is a fault on the fuel injection system

look a the service manual section 3-20 to trouble shoot what the fault is.
you need to download the service manual there's a URL somewhere on this site

No
its a fault on the fuel injection system
there's a sensor somewhere that is out of whack
that's why I'd suggest you either take it into a dealer or get the fault code yourself and work out what you want to do

Sounds like it could be your O2 sensor... You can read the FI trouble codes yourself:

Under the seat, along the right sub-frame rail is an orange/black wire with a bullet connector. This is the self-diagnosis terminal. In order to read out the CURRENT Service Codes (MODE 1), ground that wire with the KEY ON. The FI light will begin to flash codes. There will be a 5 second delay and then the codes begin. The first flash is always a LONG (1 sec) followed by either LONG or SHORT (0.5 sec) flashes. LONG flashes indicate TENS and short flashes ONES. One LONG followed by two SHORT = 12. Two LONG, one SHORT = 21. Three LONG, two short = 32, etc. There is an interval of 1.5 seconds between TENS and ONES. There is a 3 second interval between codes.

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 recover codes set in memory (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.
To clear codes from the ECU,, pull the clutch in for more than 5 seconds.

Things the ECU cannot detect:

FI light
Fuel Pump
Fuel Pump Relay
DFI Main Relay
ECU Power and Ground
Fuel Injectors

Ok guys,done the test and im getting 62 ( subthrottle valve actuator )
i have had a look in the service manual but i think i will leave it to an expert
since i dont even know what it does or what its meant to do spoke to my local dealer and he can only fit me in ,in 3 weeks time
Would it be ok to carry on riding the bike as it still seems to be running fine ?
or could i make thing worse,

same error code

i just finished changing my sparkplugs (09 with 13000 miles)
and I go to start the bike up at it:

1. Starts rough
2. FI light stays on

I did the diagnostic code thing, and got a code 62.

did I forget to connect a sensor during the re-assembly of the airbox area after i did the plugs.

I do not think I left any out, but I guess I did soemthing.

any help would be greatly appreciated.

I want to ride.

The first time I did mine I forgot to connect the plug on the right side of the airbox. I think it is the air temperature sensor.

I bought a motorcycle because my wife said that I couldn't! Now I have two and she still says I can't have another one!

Clear the code by disconnecting battery for a few minutes, and make sure your battery is fully charged. If subthrottle valve actuator still doesn't cycle properly when turning ignition on: Disconnect subthrottle sensor (upper black TPS), turn ignition on for at least 4 seconds, turn ignition off, reconnect subthrottle sensor and clear the codes again by disconnecting battery. Reconnect fully charged battery and see what happens.
