The FI lamp started to lit the other day and stays on and next time i start it can be off. When i let down the sidestand it goes off. There is no other problems with the bike, it runs good. Any ideas?

Does it just stay on or do you get any flashes that can give us the code? Right now I'm thinking bad side stand switch, if it gets worse the engine won't start.

It just stays on but not always. I was driving 1 hour yesterday and it was lit all the way, on the way home it out. It goes on and of when i use the kickstand.

I had mine come on during my trip to Alaska. I had just filled up the bike (to the top) and after I was on the road for about 10 minutes I noticed it had come on. I stopped and started the bike multiple times but is stayed on. The fix was to open the gas cap and let in some air. After that it stayed out.
