Hi All,

As in the V service manual Fuel System (DFI) 3-20 pg 96.

When the motorcycle is down, the vehicle-down sensor
is turned OFF and the ECU shuts off the fuel injectors and
ignition system. The FI indicator light (LED) blinks but the
service code cannot be displayed. The ignition switch is left
ON. If the starter button is pushed, the electric starter turns
but the engine doesn’t start. To start the engine again, raise
the motorcycle
, turn the ignition switch OFF, and then ON.
The vehicle-down sensor is turned ON and the light (LED)
goes OFF.

Q: What/How does it mean by raising the motorcycle?Is it lifting up the
front or something else?

Thanks, When in doubt, ask.

Yup, that's the way I would interpret it. Hope I never need to try it out.
yup, works as advertised. I went down, and the engine kills immediately, when you pick it back up it won't start until you turn it off and back on again. That is if its in runnable condition ;-)

Just FYI.

I have seen bikes (Japanese, but non Versys) that crashed but the sensor not working right after... Turning on and off but still can't start bike...

If you ever run into that problem, try push start the bike... It works for some stranger that run into the problem... We were helping him to find out why it was not starting after a minor crash, we try things like turning on and off many times, checking kickstand and clutch sensor... Eventually, we push start it and it started... Funny thing is that the minute the engine is shut off, it wouldn't start again, need another push start...

Since none of us know him, we never knew what was wrong, we at least got the bike started for him to ride home or the dealer...
