Exclamation Fuel injectors clogged?

My bike decided to die on me , i was going up the highway and it just immediately shut off, and the FI light came on solid. So i pulled over and stopped, turned it off then on and started it back up thinking it was okay i tried to pull off and is stalled again and the FI light started blinking, then started it one more time and gave it some throttle in neutral and as soon as i let off throttle it stalled again, i'm kind of upset half full on gas, wont even turn over anymore and the FI light stays on or blinks now, i have no idea what is happening now please help thanks!
P.S. will be at the bike in an hour or so with # of blinks.

Count the blinks...search there is a manual posted here that tells you what the codes are....my computer is acting up.

FI codes can be 1 or 2 digits in length. And there can be more than one code stored.
The long blinks are 1 second long and are 10s places, the short blinks are .5 seconds long and are 1s places.
For example, 1 long - 2 short is a code 12 while 8 short is a code 8, etc.
Each code is separated by a 1.5 second pause. The ECU continue to cycle through all the stored codes.

The ECU stores all detected codes regardless of when they occur.
The problem there is if an FI code was detected years ago and corrected, but never cleared.
Then you can be mislead by a stored code with no bearing on the current problem.
That's whey when you find and correct a problem, clear the codes for future problems.

The fuse box is near the coolant overflow bottle.
At one end, 10A Fuse A is for dometer. But at the other end, 10A fuse F is for starter and ignition.

The fuse you found inside a relay, would it be next to the finned rectifier/regulator on the left side, mounted to the subframe?
If so, that's the starter relay, and the 30A fuse is the bikes main fuse.
It blows, everything stops.

Turns out it worked with a new battery, i'm so confused but willing to say okay if that's the only cause, it seems fine now anyway, P.S. Advanced auto people are borderline car savvy. i asked for a battery they punched in my bike details and gave me one i fill uncharged etc, it doesn't say spill proof and doesn't look it, it seals with a rubber seal thing that looks crappy to, the battery sits on it's side so i'm thinking it's just going to leak on my bike should i take it back? thanks.

I wouldn't use it, get yourself a sealed gel battery.

Send a pic of it. If it has the sealing strip down the center, top of the battery, it will be okay. Just under no means turn it upside down and charge the battery out of the bike.
