Hello,
I was wondering if anyone has experienced the same problem I am currently having with my FI light. At high speeds the light will occasionaly come on and the bike will lose power for just a second or two and then everything returns to normal. I have also experienced it at lower speeds while decelerating. At first I thought it may be ethanol in some gas I had put in, that was not it. I then changed the plugs and thought that had fixed it for awhile, not so. Today I rode an hour one way and had no problems. However, on the return trip the light came on again for about three seconds and then never came on again. Other than this issue the bike is running great. Any ideas on this? Any help would be greatly appreciated before I start throwing money at the dealership.

Thanks

Welcome to the board!
Bookmark or save to your favorites folder, these websites, http://www.vtxoa.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=77
This is the NEW VTXOA Garage, a sister site to this message board and contains all your How-to/Tips/Tricks/Why’s and links to other helpful sites for your new VTX. http://www.bareasschoppers.com/ A fellow VTX Riders site that has many write-ups on “How-To” do work on the VTX. Also, for you 1300 guys http://vtx1300tips.com/VTX1300TIPS.htm another fellow VTX Riders site.

There is also a helpful Search icon in the users Toolbar just under the VTXOwners Association banner
Click the “Search” drop down and select “Advanced Search”

Now, enter your keywords and select a single forum to search in

Select 1, and only 1 "Forum" to search in at a time, or at all.
For example, "Best airbox" I would only search in the "1800 Tech Board"

That's the basic way, you can limit further by using some of the other "Drop-Down" menu's like if you know the thread you are looking for is only a week or so old, etc....

The purpose of the "Search" is to offer a member the opportunity to research his/her question better. There is so much information from past threads that you may never see because that member is no longer here, or doesn't see your new post, or just won't respond to the same question. So use it to your advantage and enjoy the board! View this funny and informative film about posting and searching…

Take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with the forum. At the top of every board there are threads that are tagged as "Sticky" These threads are "Sticky" because they contain very important/valuable information about the VTX and everyone should read them.
The thread at the top of the 1800 tech board called, "Air, Fuel, Motors..." will answer most of the performance questions...

Thanks for the advice. I have found the ground fix post and will do that this weekend as well as check the battery connections. Can't thank you enough for the advice.

Replaced battery, it was overdue, and did the ground fix. The bike is running better than I can remember in the five years I've have had it. No more power loss or FI light coming on. Thanks for the help.
