FI light and flashes???

Postby Hd2500407 » Sat Mar 18, 2017 5:48 pm

Just got my 1800 together today after a winter rebuild. I did the fat tire kit and new parts including Road Burner pipes.

My FI light now flashes slowly. I did the jumper trick and it flashes once the. A long flash then three more. Not sure what this means.

Little insight I did have a HPP computer prior to tear down and rebuild. I removed it and plan on getting power commander v I believe. I have not driven bike due to weather just would like to know what's going on with bike.

Thanks In advance.

Sounds like a 13 - front injector wires. Check the plug and associated wiring.

If you're serious about replacing your fuel manager you should get in touch with us (sales@bareasschoppers.com). We've been selling a lot of the Dobeck EJK units of late instead of the Power Commanders. They're cheaper than the PC's, have better technology, and they're easier to configure (you don't need a PC). I have yet to have a customer unhappy with them in place of their PC, in fact several customers have sold their PC to make the swap.

I traced a white wire back to sensor just behind and above intake. Apparently whoever installed this unit was going to splice there and didn't. It was a yellow and Green wire I believe that was cut. I have been reading on both units and didn't know which I should go with. I'll be in contact.

Thanks

Yeah, I just looked and I can't find it, but I have the original HPP instructions somewhere. I remember that it had one wire that went behind the intake to pull signal from. It had to be the one you found.
