Unless you want to buy a code reader, you must take the bike to a dealer and have them hook one up to see what problem the sensors have found. They can hit the reset button but the light is going to turn on again when the sensor find the problem is still present. Please rate my answer. Thanks!

F1 light flashing

you mean an FI light, not F1. if your ABS lights on that means there's either a problem with the ABS pump or sensors on the wheel, either they are dirty or just faulty.
take your bike to a Dealer to plug the bike onto a Diagnostics machine as that will continue to flash unless its reset by the machine.
if your in the UK you'd be looking at about 30-60 GBP for the Diagnostics at a Suzuki main dealer.
with diagnostics it will pinpoint the fault in the ECU to make it easier and quicker to determine the fault.

Bike back fires and the f1 light comes on on the cluster panel as well as bike dies

The F1 light is the FI fuel injection light. Your bike needs to be diagnosed and scanned by your dealer or trusted mechanic. There is a problem with your fuel system and a code has been registered, your bike won't start or run correctly until your mechanic has scanned, fixed and cleared the code.

Suzuki sv1000s , f1 light came on and the bike doesn't start

Sounds like you have a problem with the computer or the FI system on the bike. That is what the (F)uel (I)njection is on for.

F1 light comes on bike runs fine


Its pretty common and its related to the throttle position sensor, a suzuki dealership should be able to reset the sensor, or ajust whatever, but it cost you $150 DOLLARS FOR A NEW SENSOR.

You can use one trick that worked most of the times :-

Turn the bike off, turn the key back to the on position, but don't start the bike, turn it off then start the bike.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

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?

F1 displayed

The FI light is letting you know there is a problem with the Fuel Injection system on the bike. You will most likely need to take it to the dealer and have them diagnose it with their computer. You can check your fuses and make sure they are intact, but most likely dealership problem.

F1 light

it's not an F1 light it's an FI light for fuel injection. is it a full exhaust installed on the bike or just a slip on? may need a power commander to balance it all out.

F1 light on and red light blinking, wont start

I was at the local race shop in Milton Fl getting new rear tire and the owner of the shop took it for a spin to scuff the tire. When he got back he said he got the F1 code. He plugged a short wire looking thing into a plug under the seat. Took it to code machine and got c-11 code. which is cam position sensor I think he said. but he said he had never seen that error code before. I think the F1 blinking light indicates an error only. You have to have it analyzed with the bike running and code blinking to diagnose the exact issue. Ive got the same bike pictured above and I have been getting error codes pretty much since I bought it brand new in 08. It doesnt seem to affect anything tho, the bike runs normally. Mine usually comes on everytime I start it when its cold. but I can let it run a few seconds then restart it and most of the time the light will not come back on for the rest of my ride. Every now and then it will come on while riding. So I dont know if I'm getting more codes than the C-11 that came up for dude at bike shop or not. I should have taken mine in to have it looked at but never did cuz the bike runs normal as far as i can tell. Annoying as hell though when it comes on at night.

Bike cuts out after 15secs

The F1 display is an indication that one or more of your sensors are indicating a fault. Your bike is equipped with an ECM module that records and stores all fault issues. Unfortunately, only dealers and bike repair shops have the special readers to diagnose your issue. If you take it to a bike repair shop, ask to make sure they have the reader. Otherwise, it could cost you more in the long run by them trying to track it down by trial and error.
I wish I had a quick fix for you, but it looks like a trip to the dealer is in order.
Hope this helps
