  2. Have you got non standard levers or a bypassed clutch switch?

    Make sure the switch is working correctly with the lever first.

  3. Is the bike rideable? FI warnings are very common on gsxrs. I rode my k3 thou for 25000 ks with FI codes coming up intermittently. Also on my K8 I had an idle speed controller FI code when I tried tinkering with the idle speed screw on the side of the throttle bodies. I thought I'd raise the idle speed to help corner speed on my track bike but it wreaked havoc with the idle causing it to pulse terribly. Anyway backing off the idle speed screw back to 1000rpm cleared the error code and it idled smoothly again.

  5. I had the exact same issue a few weeks ago with my k7 gsxr 1000 55***kms,before you even replace anything to do with the idle speed control unit.

    Try starting your bike WITHOUT the clutch lever pulled in, if the bike starts it's simply the clutch lever switch that needs replacing,only costed me $30.
