Tank gets hot FI light comes on?

was riding and the tank got hot along with the frame after 60 miles of riding, then the FI light came on. bike wasn't running funny or anything but when i let it cool down the fI light goes out. has anyone had this issue? I am thinking the fuel may be getting close to boiling so its throwing the FI light. Also what is the best anti-freeze to run in these bikes.

There is no way the ECU can measure the fuel's temperature. So your FI comes on for a different reason IMO.
You should consult your servixe manual and jump the service connector so that the ECU can flash you (now...that sound dirty! ) the fault's code through the FI's light by blinking it.

By the way, what was your temperature indication on the dash, when that overheating occured?
