Hi, Erideree young ECM's can be very picky about strangers wanting to play with her children, it should be noted that the reasons your FI light stays on constantly or flashes and your bike will or will not start and may turn over or not, these conditions will vary from bike to bike depending on the year, make, and model and you should always refer to your owners/service manual for proper diagnostic procedures. It should also be noted that any type of prior work done to the bike or an abnormal event occurrence IE: adding accessories, electrical curiosity/adventures, laying the bike down/crashes, rain storms/bike washings just before FI light issues started can be significant hints/aids into tracking down the gremlin. The newer the bike the more sensitive the ECM becomes and will not let the bike start when aftermarket accessories have been installed without being reprogrammed. That being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty Fuel Pump, fuse or system relay switch.
2. Battery starting to fail due to old age/damage, perform a load test.
3. A discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Faulty safety switches/sensors: run/off, ignition, clutch lever, neutral, side stand, tip over, fuel, and or their connections.
5. Broken wire or worn insulation exposing wire to a ground situation especially inside wire harness at tight bends around fairing brackets, under dash panels, under fuel tanks over cylinder heads etc. Many harnesses are open on the ends that will allow water to enter and accumulate at v-bends.
Dielectric grease and contact cleaner are your best friends for wire/cable/harness connectors, look for corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets.
6. Installation of aftermarket accessories ie. exhaust systems, mufflers, air cleaners, fuel tuners, electrical component etc.

Generally bicycle (and motorcycle) chain tension is adjusted by the position of the rear axle. On bicycles you would move the axle farther back to tighten (forward to 'loosen'). Motorcycles are a little different as there is actually (usually) a specific adjuster for the axle position (same as bicycle though - rearward to tighten/forward to loosen). Hope this helps

Take it back to the mechanic and explain the problem, tell him it was OK before he touched it (assuming it was, don't try and pull a fast one) ask if he has any idea what might be causing the problem.
Be nice, don't go in all guns blazing or he will tell you to get lost.
It could after all just be a coincidence and not down to anything he did.

Thanks for contacting FixYa. I was just reviewing some of the old unsolved problems and wanted to make sure your question gets resolved.

Chain can be correctly tightened by loosening the axle nut so the axle floats. Then tighten the chain tensioning nuts on either side evenly so they tighten the chain. When the chain is properly tensioned you will have 3/8th - 1/2" of slack between the chain and the swing arm. Then re-torque the axle nuts and lubercate the chain. Should be ready to go.

Oil pump may be on the verge of going bad. When this happens , when the engine is at idle the pressure is not enough .When it idles high is OK. There is the solution .Change either your oil pump or the oil pressure sensor-less likely .Also light on at idle may be caused by engine parts going bad as the bearings ....

It has a standard LED headlight, so I am guessing you turned it off.

The brake light may only work with the engine running.

Here is the manual. Page 28. Fuses on page 170, look at fuse 6 which is lighting.

It's a bad seal of the head gasket. You need a new head gasket and to scrape every particle of debris from the cylinder head and cylinder surfaces that mate with the head gasket. Use the factory specified gasket sealing compound and do a clean job - no blobs or pools of the stuff. The head gasket should lay flat on the surface of the top of the cylinder, and you have to make this surface free of grit, leftover sealant and any other foreign matter before you put the head in place and torque it down. Start with the head bolts just finger tight and then go by the manufacturer's specs for the pattern and amount of torque to be applied. Usually it is recommended that you get to the specified torque amount in stages, going around several times and repeating the torque pattern until you get that maximum rated amount. This will prevent the seal from shifting or warping and should make the gasket seal perfectly. This is the old school method of doing this job. and I have never seen this fail to produce good results. Take your time, be clean, and you will have the results you want.
