GSXR 600 2006 - What is FI indicator? - September 30, 2007, 08:47 AM

Need help finding owner's mannual. I have the service manual but that does not have the info I'm looking for. Anyone know where I can get one?

Just changed my oil and radiator fluid and went out for a test ride. While riding, noticed the red lamp on and FI flashing. What does the FI light mean? Fuel Injection? Just filled the tank also... if it has anything to do w/ it.

Getting ready for a long ride tomorrow to PA for a steak&cheese...

Any advice is appreciated.

It does mean fuel injection. It could be a bunch of things. Got to get it looked at. I just recently had that light on an it turned out to be my exhaust valve.

all suzuki's years 2006+ will get the flashing FI light...it's a dumb sensor, but nothing to effect ure bike..it can be adjusted by the dealer...it usually is the exhaust valve.

FI... - October 2, 2007, 05:07 AM

V,

The FI definately indicates a problem. You can pull the dealer codes by shorting out a coupler located in the tail section of your bike. There is one error that is a hugh problem with the 2004 and up models; code C28...C28 is an error code for the STVA, (Secondary Throttle Valve Actuator...)

Hopefully that is not the case...Check some of the Gixxer forums out there, I have seen plenty of write up's on pulling the codes...but if your still under warranty take it to the dealer....

It's a Suzuki, the light will eventually just turn off.

If the STVA valve is going out you will be able to tell without flashing the code.

Put the bike in neutral, pull the clutch in and turn the key to the on position. If you hear anything other then the high pitched whine you always hear when you start the bike the STVA valve is done and needs replaced. It will normally sound like a clicking or grinding noise and then quickly smooth out to the normal high pitched whine.

Not true, is your STVA valve. If you start loosing power around 5-6k rpm's then you have to replace it. It is no longer a servicable unit. In order to get a new one, you have to buy the whole upper throttle body.

What is that high pitched whine?


ALL MY HEROES ARE RUSSIAN...GO CAPS!

Well you see, Norm, itís like thisÖA herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Now, as we know, excessive intake of alcohol kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. And that, Norm, is why you always feel smarter after a few beers.-Cliff Claven

Yup. That light means something.

I've had GIXXERS since 2003. Here's what it meant for me when I saw it:

- '03 GSX-R 600 - It meant, "you idiot, when drilled that hole through the battery box to mount that extra brake light, you drilled though the ECU ... and the ECU doesn't work too well with a hole through it."

- '04 GSX-R 750 - It meant, "you idiot, when you cut the exhaust off you cut it too short and those wires you taped off were used for sumthin that the ECU needs to do it's thing."

So, that's my story.

Hopefully, yours when you figure it out, won't begin with "you idiot".

LOL

The high pitch whine, I believe is the little moter within the STVA, combined with the actual secondary valves opening and closing...If I remember correctlly, the part has a mini controll board in it with a motor and a quarter gear sprocket...When you turn the bike on, the STVA(or the ECU) runs a quick test where it fully opens and closes the secondary valves. If the part is not functioning properly, it will not fully open and close the valves...

The fuel pump and the STVA valve. Should sound like a smooth high pitched whine and then silence.

it's your set valve... it needs adjusting. Easy fix once you understand how to tighten the actuator cables.

I bet you fugged them up when you put the right fairing back on... Or you started the bike before it was done with the set valve voltage calibration. It's a headache, a lot of people on gixxer.com have had to deal with (i.e. look it up).

BTW, I'm in springfield too... so if you need help with it let me know.

Get aftermarket exhaust and remove that valve and the wire in the ECU, no worries.

I got that light once when I didn't let the bike go through it's diagnostics at startup when I first got the bike but now I have a complete exhaust system with no valve!
