servo or petrol problem.

Hi,

So last night i parked my bike in the garage, it worked perfectly fine. This morning when i went to use it it was making a strange sound, F1 light blinking fast, servo under seat making some fridge sound and a low humming sound from under the petrol tank area.

I read it could be many things ranging from something unplugged, dirt, petrol pump..etc....

Any ideas please? when i opened the servo and left it plugged, the little cog keeps turning round.

I did not try to start the engine as usually when i turn the key you hear the servo go on and off before ignition and this time i didnt hear the sound and did not want to cause more complications .

F1 bulb blinks while bike is off

Hi

Is it normal for the F1 bulb so blink every second or so when the bike is off?

saw the bulb patterns, seems like a "throttle not functioning properly" light, but throttle never gave me problems. :S

What Year

What year, and what happens when keying on? I merged the threads so all info is under one thread.

So a couple things you can check, ignore my keying on unless you have done that. My first suspicion is possibly your ECU relay is stuck on. You need to check your battery voltage and if it is low, get a tender on it. Next you need to check if you indeed have power coming out of the relay. I am going to have a look at the drawing, my first thought is your key switch is malfunctioning, could have water/ carbon tracking, as the key switch powers the relays, on the MK-1 and MK-2 this was a known problem for those that had their bike outside in the weather for storage.

So to determine what is going on, check the battery voltage just for reference. Put your key in, and try locking your steering, depending on the year , this will allow you to put it in a park position with the tail light on. Note if anything happens. Next put it back to off, take notes of any changes. Last put the key in run, see if the fuel pump cycles and the F1 light comes on for 3 seconds. If all is now normal, try starting it.
