:idunno: ok here is the problem i just put my 929 back togehter after wrecking it ... once all back togehter and running the problems started ... it had all kinda FI warning lights going off, running hot, running way to rich, idleing way to high and a few other small problems. I sent to a mechanic and 700 dollars later she purrs like a kitten.. The huge problem now it still runs a lil warm but most of all when i let her rip and the rpms climb to around 6 or 7000 my red warning light start blinking really fast and the higher the rpms the faster it blinks till it is almost solid red ... the worst part the bike just stops rulling .. i mean my wife on her 01' r6 could blow my fairing off ..it just almost stops gaining speed .... please if anyone could help me that would be great

thats the problem it does not blink in a code ... like normal if its fuel injection the symbol FI will show and it will blink a code. but nothing shows ... when i get to about six grand it starts to blink so fast it is almost a solid red light

definitely a electronic or electrical fault. recheck all your wiring connections espaecially the high voltage circuit around your plugs and coils.

Yep, I'd say the computer thinks everything is normal and then when it tries to open the htev the computer finally notices something is wrong and starts signaling you. plus you can't get the exh and intake flow you need and are beaten by an r6.

look, try and retrace. you state that this prob. only came up after the crash, so there lies your prob. somewhere hile putting things together, some mishap occurred. unlike life, bikes are all about science and logic. it's not a mystical thing. if it's broke, it can be fixed. good luck. btw, unless your ecu took a directbhit or was shorted, they are unlikely to be the culprit. it's way too expensive also if you not sure.

have you actually jumped out the plug and read the mil light? the fault code doesn't just appear you have to pull it out. shoot me a PM and I will send you the part of the service manual that deals with this

If you have previously sent it to a mech and havent touched anything since you got it back, i suggest that you take it back to the mech. For that 700, everything should have been worked out and if not, well then he should have noticed it on the test ride.

I have a 2001 929, and on cool days it runs around 180 degrees and on hot days, it runs about 220 degrees...if your bike is in that range, it's not running hot. Also, if it's lean, it will have surge problems while you're trying to run at constant speeds, and it will pop a lot during deceleration

the easy way to find out if your ecu is good or bad is to swap it with one from a bike you know is running properly. One more thing before that, try unplugging and plugging back the connectors to your ECU. I have seen connectors that get jarred like that stop making good contact. I'm not saying it is definitely this, but it could be an easy fix. Another thing, when the bike stops making power, does it start skipping or anything?

where do you store your bike? it could have a nest in the exhaust, which would cause this type of restriction. If your exhaust is restricted, it will cause power loss at mid to high RPM and overheating.
