Need some help please
I was wondering if anyone can help me figure out what a F1 on my speedometer reading means? A red light is on while I'm riding and I never encounter this before on my bike. I'm riding an gixxer 600 2001 and I did an oil change at 10,000 right now its at 13,500. I was wondering could it be an oil change that I'm in need of or a coolant refill? One more thing while I was riding the reading temp kept flickering to F1 and to the actual temp. Thanks in advance
its not f1, its FI, fuel injection. you hopefully have the dealer switch mod and can find out the dealer code associated with the FI warning.
Follow this link,
This is from TLplanet.com and it is the results for FI.
Lots of good info.
jump the white dealer mode plug in the trunk(with ignition off)once its jumped then turn key on and the on/off switch on.it willl read ya a number.thats the code...
if ya need it checked then drop by carter and see me monday takes a few minutes to check.simple enough.
make sure your oil and coolants all good though before ya ride.
Thanks John, damn can't find the dealer mode plug in the trunk, I heard it's suppose to be near the tail or on the left side of the bike. Of course I don't know what's wrong until I find out what the code is, but I was wondering how far or long can I ride until its safe. So far I rode 20miles with the indictor on but for me to bring it to you or even a shop near by its gonna take 20-30 mins, should I or can I still ride thanks

the other thing is....from what the guy told me when i bought my gixxer, he said that sometimes a sensor for the fi gets dirty and needs cleaning. Don't know if that's bs or not, but might not hurt to inquire further into the matter.
That's what rearwheelerider wrote, I disconnected the battery and started the bike. Right now there's no light for FI. Strange, so was it just a false alarm??
