FI light / buckles at 6800RMP
FI light went on and it bucks at 6800. Was told locally that it could very well be bad gas.
Added a bottle of fuel system cleaner, and about 4 miles later...bike worked fine.
2 days later, same thing happened again. But it came and went this time.
Using 100 octane gas here in Greece, we more or less have 95 or 100. Back in the US, 93 was what I always used. Here, folks with nicer bikes use 100, not for the higher octane value, but because they say it's cleaner and less likely to be "watered down".
Was told to get as much gas out of the tank as I can, than refill again with 100 and include an octane booster as well?? Will an octane booster possibly help? Not sure how.
I had also replaced the battery today thinking maybe the battery is having an issue, nope. It's NOT the kickstand. I needed a new battery anyway so I tried. I'm thinking spark plugs?
Lastly...or most likely, bad pump? Perhaps the filter?
It bucks in each gear at 6800....but comes and goes. I'm trying to get to a dealership ASAP so I can have them look at it and pull the code. Just thought I would ask you guys here for thoughts until I'm able to get to the dealer. Thanks fellas...
