    Unhappy Yamaha XT660R feul Warning light question

    Is there anyone who knows why the feul warning light on my Yamaha XT660R would sporadically blink for a few seconds and then stop.
    The tank is full so I know its not a warning that I am running on reserve ?

    Any ideas fellow bikers???

    Checked in owners manual but only indicates that it is supposed to go on when running low on fuel

    It's a reminder to twist the "go faster grip" on the right a bit more
    With a twist of my wrist I cease to be human and become a god of thunder, speed and terror.

    Your Yammie has "issues", its seeking attention, sit it down and give it a good talking to, maybe it got a fright during the running in period, if nothing works speak to Mallory, she can recomend a good therapist:wink:

    So my wild and semi-educated guess would be a loose wire connected to the thingy that works out that you are running out of juice.

    I agree, an intermittent fault like that is most likely a bad connection. Check the connectors and you may also want to check the crimp on the terminals as well.

    Wiggle the wires and see if you can simulate the fault condition. It may take some time as you will have to follow the wires... but patience is your friend so sit back and take your time to find the problem.

    Let us know how it works out
    When in doubt, Gas It! It may not solve the problem, but it WILL end the suspense!

    Hi midnight special
    I realy need to sort the issues as a Yammie with issues may not be conducive to serious throttle twisting in the African bush tracks I frequently visit with the Yammie.

    Hi n3cro
    I like the way you think it suits me fine.
    Cant wait to get going on the next field trip I am planning.
    Just a bit concerned as I do not want to damage the Yammie as a result of ignoramus
    Thanx

    Hi Nexus
    I have the same idea and want to get underneath the tank to figure out where the wires are connected to do a thorrough investigation .
    I am a bit concerned though that these symptoms only cropped up after I refueled .
    I just hope that the feul station where I refueled did not have leaded fuel in their tanks instead of unleaded as was indicated on the pump.Unfortunately things are run very differently in Africa and anything is possible here with the incredible ammount of corruption and fraud that we are experiencing around here.

    Thanx
    Johann

    Hi Da Cat
    I intend to get to the root of evil that is seriously affecting the harmony between me and my XT.
