Bunbun Posted August 16, 2008 Share Posted August 16, 2008 Hey guys, I went on a short trip today, filled up once and hit the road again. About 40 miles after the fill up, I hit a bump - not really bad and didn't upset the bike but it was pretty harsh. As soon as I hit the bump, the FI light came on and the bike started to slow -- no gas. About 2 seconds later, the light goes off and everything is fine. For the next 10 miles, the FI light would come on when I hit a decent bump (not all bumps, just the ones you'd notice). The light came on about 3 or 4 more times and would immediately go off. I pulled into a service station and as soon as I got in and down to idle, the bike died completely. After a quick examination, I didn't see anything wrong, cranked up the bike and headed down the road to my destination a few miles away. Light came on a couple more times and went off. On the way to my current destination, it happened a few more times and I noticed a few more odd bits. This time, it didn't matter if I hit a bump or not as the light came on when it was a smooth surface. The duration of the light seemed a bit longer these two times. In town, it surges very badly, but the light is not on. At the beginning of the ride the bike did overheat to about 250-252 for a brief period (4 or 5 times) in traffic but it never stayed over 250 for more than a few seconds at a time, and the duration of the 240+ degree temps was about 5 mins. It's been about a month since I've ridden the bike, but I put about 150 miles on it before this started happening. I'm at my GF's mom's house near terrell, tx and my tool selection is limited to what I always keep with me. I've taken off the tank and don't see any crimped lines or anything terribly obvious broken, missing or leaking. I figure there may be crap in the tank or something got jarred when I initially hit that bump, something wrong with the computer or the fuel pump is dying. I don't have my manual here, but I do have broadband neenernet. Please help me out! Any suggestions on troubleshooting or have any idea what could be wrong? Or can someone post me a link to download a pdf manual for the bike? Thanks! Bun Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
