There's a red connector under the seat for jumpering the codes if the light is not blinking anymore, the code will be stored in memory. The procedure is in the shop manual (memory fails me presently). You can also read out the codes with the side stand down, transmission in neutral and the key on if the light is currently active. Again, you'll need a shop manual to de-code the code.

1. When the FI light comes on, slow to a halt.
2. LEAVE the engine running.
3. Select neutral.
4. Put the side stand down.
5. Watch the FI light and start counting.
6. Long blinks = 10, fast blinks = 1
7. So, 2 long blinks plus 6 short blinks = 20 + 6 = 26
8. That is the FI fault code.
9. Look the code up on the interwebnet or ask this forum.
10. Fix it if you can or ask your dealer to fix it.

Default Re: F1 codes

My F1 light is doing all kinds of things. Flashing. Staying on steady, then when the lads are getting into good diagnostic mode , it goes off and stays off. Sometimes the bike runs rough and won't idle (F1 light on) sometimes it runs fine but with F1 light on. The mechanic is baffled, will need hours of diagnostics, but I am attempting to leave on a trip tomorrow. Any thoughts?

Follow the above procedure to see if you get any codes.... Then ask us and we'll tell you what the codes mean....

Thanks BB. The bike is at the honda dealer, so they have no trouble determining the meaning of the codes. At the moment it is not flashing, nothing we do makes it flash, it is steady on. The frustrating difficulty is the intermittent nature of the behavior. I thought an electrical fault, but it is also at times running rough and refusing to idle.

If the FI light is not playing ball, can't the dealer check the fault code(s) as stored in the ECU?

Default Re: F1 codes

Sounds like a bad ECU or perhaps more likely the connections to the ECU?
