I'd guess that Fl is a fluid warning. Check your oil level, brake fluid, final gear drive, coolant level; anything liquid. The Fl light may also come on when the safety interlock is engaged. Check the coolant temperature gauge when you turn the key on. If it pegs high, your safety switch is on. Either the handlebar kill switch (red thing on the right handlebar) or the side stand switch is open. Check that the kickstand is fully retracted and the button on the switch is depressed. Past that, I'm not sure. After two months you may need to charge the battery.

A little more information is needed here. Is the bike turning over? Is the starter motor turning the engine over but not starting? Is it sputtering or coughing or backfiring?

Was it running and then just stopped? has it been sitting for a while and now won't start?

Engines need fuel, air, compression and spark to fire. Try the following. Try to start it and then:

1. pull the spark plugs. Are they wet? can you smell gas? If not you probably are not getting fuel to the engine for it to start. This bike probably has fuel injection. On many FI bikes, when you turn it on you can hear the fuel pump turn on. do you hear that? Look at the fuse box and see if you have a blown fuse for any critical functions such as fuel pump, ignition, etc.

How do the spark plugs look? Are they corroded and black and burned looking? Fouled spark plugs. Try replacing them. If they are whitish and look as if the metal as eroded away your engine is running lean and you need new plugs but also need to address running too lean or you will burn up your engine.

2. If spark plugs are wet you are getting gas. hold the base of the spark plug against metal such as the engine and press the starter. You should see a spark on the plug if it is properly grounded. If you don't see a spark then either your plugs are bad or you aren't getting spark due to a dead battery or a problem between the battery and the spark plug such as fuse box or an issue with chip that controls the engine.

3. How old is the battery? If you are having battery issues you probably can't run the starter but you might be having issues there as well.

4. If the bike is sputtering and backfiring it is probably a timing issue. I don't know your model of bike but I am pretty sure the timing is controlled by a chip. That may have issues or again, maybe a fuse that controls elements of the ignition system has blown. Are there any wires that have broken or have exposed metal that could be shorting? Any of the leads to the FI system come undone?

F1 code come on after 5000 rmp only n gear.i changed oil but used cheap oil.i lost speedometer at the same time.could this b the oil or do I have different problem.please help

Place the motorcycle on its side stand.
Start the engine and let it idle.
If the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) does not light
or blink, the system has no memory of problem data.
If the malfunction indicator blinks, note how many
times the MIL blinks, and determine the. cause of the
problem (page 5-10 through 5-49).
If you wish to read the PGM-FI memory for trouble
data, perform the following:
Tum the ignition switch OFF.
Remove the seat (page 2-2).
Short the PGM-FI system service check connector terminals
using a jumper wire.
Tum the ignition switch ON and engine stop switch
if the PGMFl
has memory
data, the MIL
does not blink
when the engine
If the ECM has no self diagnosis memory data, the
MILwill illuminate, when you tum the ignition switch
If the ECM has self diagnosis memory data, the MIL
will start blinking when you tum the ignition switch
Note how many times the MIL blinks, and determine
the cause of the problem (page 5-10 through

1.Tum the engine stop switch RUN and ignition
switch OFF.
2. Short the service check connector of the PGM-FI
system using a jumper wire.
3. Tum the ignition switch ON.
4. Remove the jumper wire from the service check
5. The MIL lights about 5 seconds.
While the indicator lights, short the service check
connector again with the jumper wire.
Self diagnosis memory data is erased, if the MIL
tum off and start blinking.
.The service check connector must be jumped while
the indicator lights. If not, the MIL will not start

blinking. Note that the self diagnosis memory data cannot be
erased if you tum off the ignition switch before the
MIL starts blinking.
If the MIL blinks 20 times, the data has not been

erased, so try again.

My 2012 exc500 cuts out with throttle wide open and FI light flickers on.

The F1 light is an engine management error, take it to your nearest dealer and get them to run their diagnosis machine on it. You may have a mixture problem or an ignition timing problem.

1993 ducati 750ss 12.5k on the clock not starting clicking noise from possible starter relay but turning motor over battery is showing 12.35 volts with all lights/horn etc working ok anyone have any ideas?...

Sorry should your thread say clicking but not turning the engine over? A battery may show a 12volt dc voltage on a meter, but not have enough amperage to turn the starter-engine, when you press the starter with the lights on are the lights affected, do they go dim or remain unafected? At the starter solenoide with the ignition turned off bridge both the thick starter leads with a pair of insulated pliers, care must be taken not to make a spark, so pliers on and the engine should turn over, if the engine does not turn over then it is likely the battery has insufficant charge or the starter it self is not working, you should next try a new sorce of power, power pack, or jump leads from another battery before making your asesmant, on purchaseing a new battery, good luck paul

After a 2 hour ride out yesterday in daylight,i always turn my lights on to be seen when returned home switched engine off opened garage went to start bike again and completely dead has a data tool duo...

Might have 12.67 volts, but not enough amps to crank engine or light the lights properly. Try putting a charger on the battery, bring it to a full charge. Next, put a load tester on the battery to see if battery is weak or dead cell. If battery checks good, check the charging system. With engine running at idle, put volt meter on battery-read volts, then rev engine to high idle. Volts should climb higher than idle reading.

2005 vulcan classic 1500; press start button (with kill switch off), I hear a click one time only. If I keep pressing the button, I here a click coming from the fuel injectors - but no engine turn over at...

Assuming you checked fuses and followed wiring for any signs of a short or connector undone. You're getting power to starter, but solenoid sounds dead if you have to bypass it.
If the engine spins but won't fire, I SUSPECT ingition problems. Encountered seal around ignition unit gone bad? That would splain the plug not firing.
Do you smell gas (oops...petrol) when you crank the motor? fuel getting to cylinder?
Check for water in fuel system.

Appeared to have a low battery when starting my bike, but it turned on. Rode about 1 1/2 miles when it hesitated twice and then i heard a loud pop, sounded like a backfire. The bike turned off and i had no...

So is the battery...ignition needs "X" amount of Volts to run the ignition, the BANG you heard was the engine pre-igniting a fuel mixture in the combustion chamber - because the ignition didn't have enough juice to fire the plug...but the HEAT of the engine DID!
Replace the battery with one from WalMart and Ride!
Good Luck

Oil and Heat warning lights stay on after engine start

Have been fighting this problem for 2 weeks .It happened when the bike feel over to the right in the garage. I called Kawasaki and this is what they said .A lot of V-twins get and air lock in the oil system when tipped over. Slide an oil pan under the bike. Then disable the ignition system. spin open the oil filter and crank the engine over until good flow is acheived and slowly spin oil filter shut and oil pressure should come up and all the lights go out. I hope this helps.
