FI light

I was out riding today and I noticed my FI light was coming on below 5,000 rpms sometimes. The bike ran fine, just the light would sometimes come on and stay on for a bit, and then go out again (not blinking, but solid stretches). I'd hate to get out again and it be a burden, is there anything preventative that I can check out that would be common to such an issue?

I recently put a Danmoto jisu exhaust on my 919 and immediately after had the fi light come on as well. Min flickers and will come on frome time to time. I was wondering if it might need to be remapped. I also have a power commander 3 and KN air filter. Any pointers would be great.

Welcome!

Probably not related to the pipes but more to the Power Commander or a wire being loose.

Just changing pipes isn't going to trigger that light. Check your connections, and/or try a new map in the Power Commander.

Agreed, see what that indicates, then go from there.
Also suggested is a PC3 bypass check, to see if the light goes on when the PC3 is out of the picture.
If the PC3 appears as possibly involved, then move to connections.

My guess is this. You probably have a bad connection made worse when you were fitting the pipes.

Before putting the pipes on I decided to pressure wash the bike. With that said I very well may have hit one of the connections with the pressurized watter I am going to look deeper into the source this weekend. Thanks for all the help!

The only thing I'll pressure wash on my bike is the lower half of the engine and maybe the headers to get road grime off. Maybe the rims and sides of the tires, too.

Never the chain, and never anything near wiring. Just not worth the risk of corrosion and chasing electrical gremlins.

Also keep the pressure washer away from wheel bearings.
