Member Contributer FireHorse Posted November 19, 2010 Member Contributer Share Posted November 19, 2010 A very big thank you to this forum for helping me figure out my FI light problem!! Turns out my gremlin was in the orange grounding block tied up in the wiring harness. Not sure how it began, maybe with an old battery putting a strain on my charging system, but whatever the case, I fried an R/R and stator not too long ago. Replaced the toasted parts but was still having issues with the FI light coming on intermittently and the motor crapping out. Bought the VFRness and installed that which made the problem less severe, but alas, still a problem. After doing my research, I finally cut into the wiring harness and found a very toasty grounding block (pics attached). Promptly cut that out and re-connected the wires and TAH-DAH, no more FI light, no more surging, no more cutting out. Can enjoy the ride once again!! So, thank you to VFRD for helping me figure that one out... isn't it nice to read a success story about the FI light problem...? Something to take note of: if you're looking into this and find the same problem, keeping in mind that the ground block has 2 groups of wiring that it connects, one has 8 wires, the other has 6. KEEP THESE GROUPS TOGETHER when you re-connect. In each group there is one wire that goes to the main grounding point on the bike, the other wires are grounds for various components...
