Why is the side stand part of the f1 light circuit
Boy this F1 light is a real PITA. Just took my bike around the block, Started it up and was happy not to see the F1 light doing its 1 flash every four seconds "thing". I jump on, lift the stand... and I'm back to a solid red light LOL Why would the stand be part of a circuit that's function is to that check for fuel injection problems? The bike runs outstanding.
What I can't figure out is why, as least in my case. I'll start the bike while its on the stand ( In Neutral) ( light flashing ever 4 seconds) then as soon as I pull in the clutch, raise the stand and go into 1st gear the f1 light comes on?. Is it that the ECU is detecting a problem and as soon as it "sees" the bike going into gear it letting me know of a problem?
Thanks. I think I found the answer, According to a posting on the CBR board. the F1 light will flash the code that its finding ( In my case 1 flash or code 10) while its running on the stand. Then go solid red when the stand is up or the bikes in gear. With a little luck I just got to fix the code 10 issue and the problem is solved.
