Is this normal?? I can't remember if it did that before (although it always started relatively easy and quick so I never payed attention.. bike is almost stock has aftermarket pipe and I made the servo dummy plug so f1 light wouldn't be on.. (not from exhaust at least) but it's not on when keys turned on , only when cranking it over... Any help is appreciated!!!! Thanks

Ugh! Shit! It's not an F1 light! It's an....

FI light - Fault Indication!!!

All Gens: So, your "FI" light is on.....

The light is flashing during the start sequence because your tip-over sensor (vehicle down sensor) is activated. You need to check that. The FI light should stay on steady when there's an error detected. It should not flash while trying to start - unless the tip-over sensor is activated.


I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

F1 (Formula 1) is way cooler than FI

I can't wait for the day that Formula 1 changes the name of that series to Phormula 1 (PH1)! Then I can post up about it not being an PH1 light!

The tip-over sensor is under the fuel tank just in front of the battery. It is a black plastic piece mounted vertically by 2 bolts on either side that hold it in. It will be marked "UP" with an arrow. It has a 3-wire connector hooked to it.

Just because the bike hasn't been down, doesn't mean the sensor isn't bad. A big jolt to it like hitting it or dropping it can damage it. Or the wiring going to it is bad. Especially if it gets fuel on it since it is located right there. If we're still talking about a Gen 1 that is.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

Maybe at first sight but after being on this forum for years, ive learned its actually a super duper common thing to have happen and many times one of the first things a person will look at when doing diagnostics.

A good tuner...can make a dyno say anything it wants.

We will all die but only a select few of us will ever truly live.

Ok well that's not it or at least doesn't appear to be it.. how do I test the tilt sensor? Or jump it out to get it out of the equation?? Anyway I doubt it's got anything to do with it since it acts the same way (turns over but no sounds or ecu or anything) with sensor unplugged.. Fi light did stay on when unplugged tho and went back out when I plugged sensor back in so it appears to be working correctly... Any help is greatly appreciated!!!! And I can post a pic or video if that would help?? Idk what you'd wanna see but if ya tell me I'd be happy to help you help me....lol. Thanks to all who read this...
