    well, i was wondering how long it would take before i had FI problems. guess the answer was almost 1,000 miles. riding out in the dez today and the little idiot light comes on and signals 4x's long, 5 x's short. according to the manual this means the heating lambada sensor for cylinder 1. possible interuption or short circuit to ground, or heating lambada sensor input signal too high.

    well, i don't know about you guys but that doesn't help me much. WTF is a heating lambada sensor, and where is it?

    planing on taking the bike into the stealership tomorrow but would like to have a little more info before i do.

    thanks,

    Do you have the factory crash bars? If so then check to see if the rear probe wire was pinched by the clamp. It runs down the inside of the frame above the left footpeg. Remove it from the clamp and it should be fine, although you may need to tape the cut insulation on the wires.

    you my friend are a genius! i was very careful about those wires when installing the clamp but i did an oil change the other day and must not have paid as much attention when tightening everything back down. thought i had them completely out of the way but i guess not. i will fix the wires this morning and see if that clears thing up.

    thanks again,

    The last time my Lambada sensor played up was when I accidentally channel surfed to Dancing with the Stars. Full body shiver!

    got it fixed. re-routed the wires and some very minor touch up to the wire shielding. no more FI light. :D

    thanks again,
