My F1 light just came on. I have no manual and need my ride for work tomorrow am. What should I do?
So where is this mysterious dealer plug under the seat, I have a 2017 650 burgIt depends on how you read the display.
If you read it as Fl (F + lower case L) then it means you live in Florida and can ride your bike year round. Congratulations.
If you read it as F1 (F + number one) then it means you are lucky enough to have one of the really, really fast formula 1 Burgmans. Congratulations.
If you read it correctly as FI (F + uppercase I) it means Fault Indication and it functions as the Burgman equivalent of the check engine light. It means that one of the 'things' that the ECM monitors is out of spec. To find out which reading is out of spec, you need to use the 'Dealer mode' function a.k.a. the magic jumper on the mysterious plug. This will cause the display to show what is causing the indication. The faults are not persistent so they reset every time your start your scooter. If you have an intermittent issue, you may find yourself having to ride around with the dealer mode jumper installed for a while until you finally get to read the code.
It is amazing how many people suggest it stands for fuel injection or fuel and ignition which represents only a portion of the monitoring functions the ECM performs.
Bond, I am not sure if the 2013-2018 Burgman has this connector in the same place as the 2002-2012 650. But in the next quoted posts it shows where to look on the 2002-2012's.See the pictures below.So where is this mysterious dealer plug under the seat, I have a 2017 650 burg
Justin, all you need is a water resistant on/off switch, some wire and a bit of soldering skills. I have one somewhere in the garage I made.
The switch needs to be ran somewhere you can get to with the bike still running. I made my wires long enough to reach up to the left small cargo box up front. Then snaked the wire down to where the connector is on the left side under the seats edge. I twisted the wire tips and soldered them and then used a file to make a square'ish tip that slides into the connector.
Or you can use a Paper Clip.
I think you have 2-5 seconds to shut the engine off and restart it before it dumps the codes. So if you're quick, while still running put it on center stand, shut the engine off, quickly pop the trunk latch but don't wait to open it yet, re start it, THEN open the seat and put the paper clip in the two right side female connectors.
