Grab a paperclip.

Place the bike in Neutral, and take the rear seat cowling off. On the side of the bike between the tail section and the trunk you will find a connector that is covered by a rubber cap, and has two wires running into it. Remove the cap and take note of which one of the 4 sockets the two wires go to. Turn the bike ON and start it up, short the wires out with the paperclip. Where your speedo was flashing a -CHEC- with the temp should now be a CXX error code. Write this code down. Then shut the bike off. Match the code up with the list below. Grab a Manual and get to work!

(What you have just done is put the bike into "Dealer Mode".

Sounds like you might have cooked the battery. Try with a new one, start the bike and see how it runs. Hopefully you didnt fry anything else.

My 04 gsxr 1000 was parked for a year and a half when i bought it. I had a ton of rust in the fuel tank. The engine is fuel injected so it needs a free flowing fuel pump to keep a constant pressure. more than likely the strainer at the bottom of the pump housing is plugged up full of rust. You will need to remove the tank from the bike and drain all the bad fuel. Unbolt the pump housing from under the tank take care not to damage the o ring. Separate the pump from the housing by pulling apart. This may take some brute force because the rust tends to stick the pump to the housing. Once separated you will see the plastic micro strainer it will be solid brown impregnated by rust. Carefuly remove it and soak it in some fresh clean gosoline. Swish it around in a glass jar with a lid on it if possible. This worked for me. The alternative is a new strainer for about 100.00 USD. Clean the rest of the pump externally with a soft bristle brush. Drain the pump as best you can. Do not attempt to disassemble the pump as it is sealed and considered maintenance free. Ventalate the tank untill completely dry and blow it out with compressed air untill no more rust dust comes out of it. At this point you can recoat the inside of the tank if you wish, there is a product called kreme for that. Im cheap so i didn't recoat mine. Reassemble, refill with high octane fuel and dont store long term without draining the fuel tank completely and run the engine til it starves itself of fuel. With all this said YOU ARE DEALING WITH FUEL BE CAREFUL, DONT BLOW YOURSELF UP!!!

I have a 2003 Suzuki TL1000R. It was running fine, then I stopped for gas. When I tried to start it, it would only turn over slowly, but would not fire, and the little F1 light came on. Help??


Open your rear seat and you'll see a black cap covering a connector/harness on the left side of the seat. If you take the cap off, you'll see it appears to be a normal harness. With your key in the ignition and bike turned to "on" (but not running), take a paperclip and short the two connectors out (by touching the two contacts together). This is known as a "ghetto dealer mode switch". It should display the error code on your display instead of just FI now.

My 2008 CBR 1000 RR wont start. It turns over but wont fire without throttle and fans run constant? Any ideas?


Hi, Superspor231 the reason your bike failed to start is stored in your original ECM as a generated fault code, replace the original ECM and retrieve the code and go from there, for this scenario you will need your service/owners manual if you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Yamaha, despair not, for a mere zero $0 you can download another one.

I have an 02 gsxr 1000. A red warning light is coming on indicating fi,oil or coolant issues. Oil was just changed and fresh, no overheating problems. Seems to b running good. How do I figure out what's...


The lcd display should show either an oil symbol, a temp symbol, or fi to let you know which system the warning light is for. The oil symbol should be present before starting the motor and go away once the engine is running, if not you have an oil pressure problem. If it is FI, then you will need to jumper the test connector located under the seat to retrieve the codes on the display and a service manual to look up the code.

F 1 appeares on dash bike turns over but wont fire


The sensors on the bike have detected a problem in the FI ( fuel Injection ) system. Take it to a dealer and they can plug in a code reader to see what is causing the problem.

2002 Suzuki GSX 1300 R Hayabusa FI light keeps flashing


Hi, Cliffbush98 it should be noted that the reasons your FI light stays on constantly or flashes and your bike will or will not start and may turn over or may not and run great or sputter, these conditions will vary from bike to bike depending on the year, make, and model and you should always refer to your owners/service manual for proper diagnostic procedures. It should also be noted that any type of prior work done to the bike or an abnormal event occurrence IE: adding accessories, electrical curiosity/adventures, laying the bike down/crashes, rain storms/bike washings just before FI light issues started can be significant hints/aids into tracking down the gremlin, also carry the appropriate jumper wire to access fault codes to reduce the risk of being stranded or towed. The newer the bike the more sensitive the ECM becomes and will not let the bike start when aftermarket accessories have been installed without being reprogrammed. That being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty Fuel Pump, fuse or system relay switch.
2. Battery starting to fail due to old age/damage, perform a load test.
3. A discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Faulty safety switches/sensors: run/off, ignition, clutch lever, neutral, side stand, tip over, fuel, and or their connections.
5. Broken wire or worn insulation exposing wire to a ground situation especially inside wire harness at tight bends around fairing brackets, under dash panels, under fuel tanks over cylinder heads etc. Many harnesses are open on the ends that will allow water to enter and accumulate at v-bends.
Dielectric grease and contact cleaner are your best friends for wire/cable/harness connectors, look for corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets.
6. Installation of aftermarket accessories ie. exhaust systems, mufflers, air cleaners, fuel tuners, electrical component etc.

When warming up, my K3 GSX-R1000 red light (oil) stays illuminated & F.1 displays where temp is.. what does it mean


I have been told this is the "dealer mode" and it might clear if you the bike off then turn the key back to the on position, but don't start the bike, turn it off then start the bike. this is supposed to reset the FI light.

To find out why it has brought this light up in the first place might require you actually taking it to a dealer, but there are lots of forums and info on this bike on the web
