How old is the battery...if more than two years its probably seen its days.it wouldn't hurt to replace it, because its pretty hard to push start bikes in certain places you park. An old battery will read 12v, but you have to measure it with the bike running anyway to check the regulator system.
With a good battery 12.5v is nominal, 13v perfect now start the bike, crank it up to 4k rpm and hold it and watch the voltage climb way up to like 14v maybe 14.5v then climb rapidly down as supposed to, this is called regulating the charge to the battery. After a long ride then check the resting voltage... and on a good battery and it will probably read 12.6v to 12.8v. But if you ever read just 12v the battery has a bad cell in it and its dying. hope this helps you out, can i get some feedback..thanks

It may be that you need to pair the alarm fob with the alarm as the battery can cause it to spike. Check the alarm fault diagnosis but with mine you just hold both buttons down on the fob for 5 seconds and it resets

The meter actually is saying FI as in Fuel Injection. The onboard computer chip has detected a problem in the fuel system. It is a minor problem. If it were a fatal problem the chip would not let the bike start. You will need to take the bike to the dealer and have him plug in the code reader. The reader will tell him exactly what needs attention. He can tell you then you gotta decide if you will fix it yourself or have the dealer do the repair.

Have the temp. switch checked

2000 Honda VTR... | Answered on Dec 13, 2009

Hello Simon...Check to see if the cooling fans are operational and are cycleing properly...not sure what the exact kick in temp. is on the 2000 model, but on the 98's it was around 104. The thermostat could be trying to stick and not fully opening...The cooling system was designed for optimal cooling with low air pressure flow. Check the cooling fins on both radiators for any dirt, bugs or debris that could be constricting air flow....and of course...coolant level.
Hope this helps...good luck.
