DFI, FI, it does not matter, If you know what it means, if he knows what it means and if I know what it means, its mission accomplished!I got p l e n t y of thoughts, but thanks for the suggestion. But Ididn't see anywhere that he said it occurred while the engine was running. If there was ONE thing I could strongly impress upon anyone that uses ANY forum (I belong to 14 including Harley, Suzi, Ducati, Honda, Aprilla and 'Busa, Vmax, and even a Chinese Clone Scoot forum) is to a) become an informed owner and the #1 point there is to download your Service Manual and read the troubleshooting section. Become familiar with the terms of your bike (the manufaturer calls it a DFI light in the service manual, so don't call it an FI light) and understand common terms and be specific. I.E., I hear a "clicking" noise...from where, how fast, how long or # of times, when (startup is not the same as at idle and shutdown is not the same as idling before turning off) and EXACTLY what precipitates the condition (i.e. did you use the key, use the kickstand kill, use the emergency kill, etc). Sure, there are simple common things that can be identified between diff makes and models of bikes, and even between bikes and cars, but there are also problems that are unique to each machine and/or owner mistakes. One example I see on this forum and Big Kaw forums in general is the ref to a "knock" in the engine, and there are actually several causes not related to poor tolerances or OEM flaws in any way (the common excuse), but rider error in maintaining the engine. But how can anyone expect to give a correct diagnosis when the owner can't even figure out whether it's coming from the crankcase left or right side or the valve covers or properly say whether the bike is idling at 850 rpm or if he/she has fiddled with the idle stop and shut it down to tick over at 650 rpm because they like the sound or if the knock comes in only at 1850 rpm under slight acceleration or at WOT?? It makes a difference whether your beating the crap out of the counterbalancer or flexing the cam chain or shanking the crank by not running enough oil pressure at low rpms. The point to my rant...if you own it, learn about and know how to talk about. Otherwise, just go to the Stealership and hand over the credit card of your choice.
