use the search feature on this site. you'll find instructions on how to put the bike in dealer mode which will give you the FI code, like C(some#). This code corresponds to what the issue is on the bike. Find out what the code is and again use the search feature to find it out. It most likely has something to do with your exhaust, but you never know.

Like I said, do some searching on how to put the bike in dealer mode and pull a code.

Good luck!

Default FI light

I have an '06 600 and I'm in Jersey. Riding time is limited so in the winter I start it up every 2 - 3 weeks. The FI is for Fuel Injection on the '06's. I would assume it's the same for all. My red light and indicator came on this morning, I let it run for 15 mins. I shut the bike off, then restarted it, and now it's off. Try to same and when the bike gets up to a good temp, rev the throttle to 7 or 8 rpms. If all else fails, call the dealer first before taking it there so you don't waste a ton of $$.

That's your SET Valve. This should help.

EDIT: You'll have to click on SET Valve, not a direct link.

Incase you didn't find it. There is no dealer switch on your bike. You have to find two wires on a blank pigtail and put a jumper between them. Or better yet, install a rocker switch somewhere on your bike. The wires on all the bikes I've seen are on the left side under the rear fairing. The switch is the way to go because this is a pain to do everytime you have a code.

There is a plug in the tail section, you can buy "dealer switch" and connect to it, if ever "F1" code shows, you simply click the switch, and get the code on your dash...

if C46 is the code, i would check the exhaust control valve.
Does your bike have aftermarket exhaust?? if so, then thats probable the reason. if the one who changed the exhaust, removed the control valve, you need to get one, plug it in, and fasten it somewhere where its save.

No pix, sorry..
but on my 1000, its located in the left side of the tail section, has a rubber cover over it.
Im not sure where exacly it is on the 600, but it is there in the tail section.

Call 001-803-285-8093 on monday, ask for Dwayne, hell help you, i think he can even get you this dealer switch.

On the k6six, its a 6pin female connector. has a black rubber cap on it. Sits near the negative terminal of the battery. Its prolly jammed into the crack in there somewhere...There is a pic of it in the manual, if you go to the Technical FAQ section, and look for the manual for your bike, im sure u will find it.
