Question about Motorcycles
I had a dead battery and put a 2 amp charger/maintainer on to boost the battery back up. When the battery was charged, I started the engine but when it fired up the red oil pressure light started flashing and a FI engine code appeared just below the red light. The engine runs fine, it has oil and oil pressure, but the FI code will not go out and the red light continues to flash. What does this mean, and what do I do to correct the error code?

I have just found my 30 amp fuse blown on my daytona , this prevents the alternator working , it was reading 10.9v before I changed the 30 amp fuse , now it reads 14.5 volts , I think I blew it as I didnt know how to put the alarn into service mode and left the ignition on , anyway I am hoping its just that , 3 heat up/cool down cycles and the engine management light should go out

The flashing FI is telling you that the Fuel Injection computer has detected a problem in the system. Some problems are minor (dirty air filter) and the computer will still allow the bike to run. Some problems are major (plugged up injectors) and the computer will not allow the engine to start. You will need to have a dealer check the computer diagnostic reading to find out where the problem is.
Can I get a “very helpful” rating on this answer?

hey mate, i had the same trouble with my bike came up red light with FI it ended up being the charging circuit and i had to replace the regulator/rectifier to fix it...
Im guessing the FI stands for fuel injection and there is not enough charge for it to run the fuel injection system...
could be the same problem with your bike, easiest way to check is to run a multi meter that is set to volts dc over the + & - on the battery and see what its got then start the bike and it should go fluctuate between 13.0v and 13.5v...
If it just stays on 12v and drops slowly it is not charging the battery!

SOURCE: the fi light is flashing
FI stands for Fuel Injection. The fuel system sensors have detected a problem. It could be anything > a dirty air filter restricting airflow, a plugged injector, an error in fuel mapping, any number of things. Serious problems can trigger the computer to prevent starting until the problem is fixed. You will need to take the bike to a Kawasaki dealer to have them plug in a code reader. The code reader will tell you exactly what the problem is. Please rate my answer. Thanks.
