Question about 2004 Honda STX 1300 Pan European

Fuel injection system light

Hi, my colleague too rides an STX 1300 model, his bike is 2 years old. Recently we travelled up to Thailand and to our understanding with this model motorbike is that the fuel injection system indicator light on the front panel will cut off few seconds during the intial warm up, in this case during our return the light did not cut off and we had to try our luck restarting the engine a few times. any idea why thie happened.
Thank You

    with regards to your solution I cannot find the location of the fuel filter, could it be that petrol engines such as motorbikes do not require fuel filter but use strainers instead.

Hi, Anonymous the following applies to carbureted also fuel injected models and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, 9 volts or lower.
2. Faulty alternator/generator and or voltage regulator.
3. 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 main circuit breaker or ignition switch, check for loose connections and continuity.
5. Faulty system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
6. Faulty ignition coil, ignition/electronic module.
7. Faulty CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, O2, or BAS sensor, corroded, loose or broken wire connector pins/sockets.

Thinking of buying one of three bikes, the Honda 1300 cruiser/fury, or the bulivard, or a V star, the fact that the Honda bikes are in use of a carberator, with fuil injection where it is today isn't this...

Fuel injection is a wonderful thing. It self adjusts for fuel and altitude. If you do any modifications to the exhaust or intake you will have to buy a power commander to further compensate for the changes. If you have a problem with the fuel injection system you will have to pay some one to work on it.
Carburetors have been around forever and the technology has come a very long way. Modern carburetors can compensate for altitude changes nicely(vacuum style). If you change your exhaust you can clean and modify/rejet the carburetors yourself. A nice feature if have a problem far from a dealer.
One thing to keep in mind, fuel injection adds a measured amount of fuel each time the injector works. This makes fuel consumption very consistent. Carburetors flow fuel according to how much you twist the throttle. You will get poor fuel economy if you always twist hard on the throttle. On the other hand , if you are gentle with your handling of the throttle you can often minimize your fuel consumption and possibly get better fuel consumption.
My last dirt bike vacation would have been ruined when my riding buddy had carburetor problems after running out of gas the first day. We disassembled the carburetor and discovered a loose jet,wrong air screw setting, and the vacuum piston spring installed incorrectly by previous owner. We were amazed it ran at all. Cleaned the carburetor, reassembled it correctly, and put settings back to stock. Now the bike ran like new and the rest of the week of riding was saved. Call me old school , but it sure is nice to be able to fix something yourself.
Modern motorcycles are well built, well designed, and extremely dependable. Buy the motorcycle that is most comfortable, offers the options you want/need for your riding style. The V-star offers a lot of chrome if you are into that. Just remember: Chrome Don't Get Yah Home.

Suzuki gsxr k6 600 fuel injectors problems The F1 light has come on when I started the bike up it alternates between the temp and F1 I have not started the bike in a while 1 month

The display is really FI as in Fuel Injection. The fuel injection computer has sensed a fault in the Injection system. You will need to ride the bike to a dealer and have them read the fault codes. It is probably just something minor. Major faults will not allow the bike to run. You will not hurt the bike if you ride it.

Can I get a “very helpful” rating on this answer?
