good ol' FI light

ok so today i start my bike and let it warm up like i always do. Then i ride about a mile to a gas station and fill the bike up. When i was shutting the lid, it didnt feel like it shut all the way but i went ahead and started the bike....the moment it started the FI light was blinking. I turned it off and re-shut the lid, and the light is still blinking(im thinking it may have to do with it pressurizing the fuel tank). I have rode the bike about 10 miles and it is still blinking(but the bike feels just as strong)....so i was thinking about pulling the ECU fuse to let it reset and go from there. Any suggestions guys....thanks for the help.

F1 lights ONLY go out on the 10R when the problem is fixed so the Fuse thing won't work if the ECU still can detect a problem at start-up or riding. Personally I don't think the tank thing is related or the main cause, you need to check your manual and check the code out.

FI is all to do with the electronics side of your fuel injection system. definitely not the tank. perhaps your exhaust servo took a dump.

the code is 34 which is open or short in the exhaust butterfly valve. so when i get a chance i'm going to see if their is power to the servo and go from there.

You can test if the servo is moving/power in 3 secs., as soon as you turn on your bike you should hear behind the seat the servo motor and cables pulling.....don't start your motor just turn on the ignition switch.
