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 the engine from starting until the problem is fixed. You will need to take the bike to a dealer to have them plug in a code reader. The code reader will tell you exactly what problem has been detected. There is also a chance a sensor has gone bad and is giving a false signal. Keep that in mind. Now determine if you want to do the fix or have the dealer do it. Please rate my answer.

I have a 2007 zx6r and it runs fine but the f1 light is flashing but as soon as you try to put it in gear it cuts out

Hi. There ae numerous forums/site for your bike's FI codes. Since I don't know what code your FI is flashing, all I can say is put the FI code into your computer google or yahoo search area, and you will get an answer. Yiur FI should flash a few times first, and that is the first digit in the sequence. A second later, it should flash again, and that is th 2nd digit in the code. an EXAMPLE is 2 flashes, pause, 3 flashes...then repeats. That will be a code 23. Trust me, you will find the FI code online. Good luck!

It could be, but it is more likely to be the ECU (or FI computer) or a sensor that feeds information to the ECU. There is a sensor in the exhaust that check for the correct mixture. You will need a diagnostic machine to test this.

My GSXR 750 year built 9 97 is a fuel injection system, after 1 minute with motor runing i get a red light { FI } on the manometer if i do not give gas to the engine it will turn off so i have to kipe it...

FI stands for Fuel Injection. Sensors on fuel system have found a problem. Many problems are simple, like a dirty air filter. Some problems are serious, like low fuel pressure. Some problems are "fatal" like fuel mapping gone bad. Fatal problems will not allow the bike to run. You will need to get the bike to a dealer and hook up a code reader to see what the sensors have found. Bear in mind, be sure the sensor hasn't gone bad.

Heya i just bought a 2003 honda cbr 954 was running fine past week then as it got warm next few days after start up. started stalling and bogging down in 1st 2nd and then running ruff ,,,guy at honda...

If it has an aftermarket Fuel Injection programmer (like a dynojet powercommander), it may have lost its programming. Some of the older systems used a serial connection to upload/save FI programming...some newer ones use USB. You would need to identify if you have one - what model it is - then determine what map it needs and upload accordingly.

Sometimes the FI on the bike needs a reset or determine the code being generated. Here is a forum that lists the procedure:

Good Luck.

Placed a new battery in my 2002 vfr800 it hasnt run for aver 18 months and now it still wont start the F1 light is on and there is no nutrel light

The on board Fuel Injection ( FI ) sensors have detected a major fault in the injection system. Minor faults will alert you of a problem but still let the engine run. Major faults will not let the engine run. Take the bike to a dealer so they can plug in a fault reader to find exactly what the problem is. Be aware that the problem may actually be a bad sensor.

99 cbr 1100xx short in head light system causing fi light 2 come on with high beam on fi light comes on also front brake causes light 2 come on .also when running 3/4 hot bike pops n shuts down.i think the...

the problem is within the wiring system. there is a loom that gathers all wires which is used at time of manufacture to test that the bike has been wired properly. once tested the loom is capped and has no other usage. this loom is not depicted in the wiring diagram and over time it degrades and shorts out causing the FI light to come on. the fix is to cut it out. I went through this on my 99 Blackbird. I found this fix on the blackbird site posted by a fellow from Britain.
