F1 means short circuit motor triac.
You need to call an engineer.

The FI light is letting you know there is a problem with the Fuel Injection system on the bike. You will most likely need to take it to the dealer and have them diagnose it with their computer. You can check your fuses and make sure they are intact, but most likely dealership problem.

SOURCE: I have a 1980 Honda CX 500 Custom and the

Honda temperature gauges tend to run high before the electric fans kick in. They also tend to read differently on different bikes of the same model (fuel gauge, temp gauge , speedometer, etc.)Your fan is driven attached directly to your cam so it spins constantly. If your machine is not actually overheating or boiling over and has plenty of anti freeze, I would just keep an eye on it and not worry about it. If your engine gets really hot it will tend to leak anti freeze down the left rear cover past the water pump seal. This is normal and should be of little concern unless the water pump develops a steady drip. Then the water pump seal is bad and will need to be replaced.

Unless you want to buy a code reader, you must take the bike to a dealer and have them hook one up to see what problem the sensors have found. They can hit the reset button but the light is going to turn on again when the sensor find the problem is still present. Please rate my answer. Thanks!

Park the bike in a flat, easily accessible area, and stand the bike on its center stand. This will make the bike much easier to work on, and less likely to fall...drain coolant.
Use a standard Phillips screwdriver to remove the motorcycle's radiator shroud covers. On most Honda CBR models, the shroud covers will be secured by only three bolts...disconnect electrical end connections on the bottom edge of the radiator fan. Look for things like solder gapping, bubbling and corroding...Remove coolant hoses & mounting bolts & slide radiator and fan out. Inspect your hoses, flush and clean system. I would change thermostat now also. Make sure to use only Honda approved coolant when you refill. This is very important for the life of the pump and cooling system. Good luck, i hope this helps.

Why does my honda 420 FI light flash 9 times


Check your bike with it parked on the side stand. Count how many times the F1 light flashes. There are two types of flash that it gives off... a long one and a short one! A long flash = 10 short flashes.

So you may get 2 x long flashes and 5 x short flashes = 25 flashes in total.

The codes for Honda ST1300 are as follows. I know yours is a different model but I would have thought they would all be the same across the Honda range.
0 - bank angle sensor, ECM, PGM-FI fuse
1 - MAP sensor
2 - MAP sensor vacuum hoses, or sensor itself
7 - ECT sensor poorly connected or open circuit
8 - TP sensor, TP senspr wiring
9 - IAT sensor connection, or open wire
10 - Baro sensor, or connection, or wiring
11 - Vehicle speed sensor, or connection or wiring
12 - #1 injector connection, or faulty injector
13 - #2 injectior connection or faulty injector
14 - #1 connection or open/shorted circuit
15 - #2 connection or open/shorted circuit
18 - Cam pulse sensor, connection or loose sensor
19 - Ignition pulse sensor, connection or loose sensor
20 - faulty E-PROM in ECM.

My Kawasaki zx6r 2009 keeps displaying f1 and with a flashing red light. The bike runs fine. Sometimes shuts off while warming up. how do I fix it?


it actually means fault indicator and doesn't deal solely with the fuel injection.

put the key in the ignition and turn it on, but don't start the bike. use the mode button to go to the odometer display, then hold the mode button down for 2 seconds. the code should be displayed.

come back when you have the code

I have a 2007 zx6r and it runs fine but the f1 light is flashing but as soon as you try to put it in gear it cuts out


Hi. There ae numerous forums/site for your bike's FI codes. Since I don't know what code your FI is flashing, all I can say is put the FI code into your computer google or yahoo search area, and you will get an answer. Yiur FI should flash a few times first, and that is the first digit in the sequence. A second later, it should flash again, and that is th 2nd digit in the code. an EXAMPLE is 2 flashes, pause, 3 flashes...then repeats. That will be a code 23. Trust me, you will find the FI code online. Good luck!

F1 mean with flashing red light


Is it only when the bike is running is it on all the time? Does it have a diagram? It could either be temp, oil or service.

Cbf 1000 running hot


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Low coolant level.
2. Restricted radiator air flow.
3. Faulty thermostat.
4. Coolant pump or fans inoperative.
5. Vent hose crimped.
6. Air in the coolant and needs bleeding.
7. Engine idling too long or bike moving too slow.
8. Coolant too old needs to be replaced.
9. Faulty temperature sensor, wiring or connector.

2002 Honda CBR 600 F(4)I what does the f1 light mean


Hi, Stevebrown10 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 not, 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. 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.

Bike back fires and the f1 light comes on on the cluster panel as well as bike dies


The F1 light is the FI fuel injection light. Your bike needs to be diagnosed and scanned by your dealer or trusted mechanic. There is a problem with your fuel system and a code has been registered, your bike won't start or run correctly until your mechanic has scanned, fixed and cleared the code.
