FI Light

Hey guys,
I was riding my Vee2 to work yesterday when about 20 mins in my FI light came on. I pulled over, turned the bike off and on and it disappeared. About 15 mins later the same the happened, so I turned it off and on again. About 20 minutes after that the same thing again. On my way home from work it was fine up till about the 40 minute mark then the light made an appearance again, same deal off and on and it happened again about 15 minutes after that.
Also for the first time it stalled during downshift coming up to a bend (the FI light was on at this point also).
I have recently installed Oxford heated grips, the newer style with just the two connectors straight on the battery.
My ecu part number ends in 1 where I believe the faulty ones ended in 0 and the replacement ones ended in 2 from memory.
Bike is pretty much stock; no slip ons or anything like that yet.
Thanks for your help guys!

I had same issues. I was pissed, because my stupid shop would not warranty the issue. Suzuki days it's a maintenance issue. Easy fix. It's the exhaust valve butterfly. The cables have loosened up. Just tighten them up and problem fixed. Easy peasy. By the way, it does not state anywhere in the manual that this is general maintenance.

Check the code every FI generates and it will point to the offending area. FAQ: Dealer Mode & FI Error Codes

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

The bike is a month old, I am about to contact them about it. If they claim that to be a maintenance issue they will receive an ear full!

Just had a quick look, how loose should they be one is pretty tight with no movement and the one on the other side has a bit of free play? Thanks

Thanks, I have disconnected the battery to make sure I didn't screw up the fool proof task of installing the grips so the codes would've cleared, but next time it comes up and I'm not in a rush to get to work I'll be checking them.

Have you had the recall done on your bike?

I washed my bike (to get rid of the salt and crap) on a Sunday in January then rode about 20 km to a gas station (to get ethanol free gas.) On the way to the station the FI light started coming on. While riding I turned off the bike and turned it on again but the light came right back. I got to the gas station no problem but it would not start after filling. Strange clicking under the seat when I hit the starter but no go. Booster didn't help. I had it taken to the dealer and it did start the next morning but not the afternoon. One of the recall issues (I had them all) caused the issue.l

..Tom

My Opinion:
Vee or V= DL1000 before 2014
Vee2 or V2 = DL1000 2015 to 2019
Vee3 or V3 = DL1050 2020 to?

My Stroms:
2006 DL650: 202,000 km 125,500 miles, Sold
2012 DL650 139,500+ km, 86,700+ miles. Sold
2015 DL1000 New July 2015 205,000+ km, 127,000+ miles.

This can help preventing from cars pulling out in front of you (SMIDSY)
SMIDSY detailed report.

A Suzuki SDS tool or a HealTech OBD tool for Suzuki will reveal stored codes. Disconnecting the battery has no effect on them. Active codes are cleared when the ignition is turned off so, if you intend to use the dealer mode connector shorting system to read the code, carry a spare key to access the dealer mode connector under the seat while the ignition remains on. You can also ride with the bike in dealer mode with no negative influence on the bike.

It came back on and I got codes C28 and C65, So I assume its just the Secondary Throttle Valve Actuator. Doesn't that sound like fun!

Cleaning and lubrication the linkage and moving parts in the throttle bodies usually handles that.
