I've bought a brand new bike and have had it for about 2 months. Later this week I noticed that after about 5 mins of riding the Fuel Injection light comes back on. I stop the bike, turn the ignition off and turn it back on letting the fuel rails charge again and it seems to be good.

I noticed a little decrease in power when the light is on.

Also, when the fuel rail charges in makes a kind of gurgling noise rather then an electric purr with other bikes I've ridden.

Could this be the fuel pump acting up?

(PS: bike is a 2012 Kawasaki W800 and I run it on 95 octane premium. Bike has been successfully broken in.)

The decrease in power is probably from the engine going into some kind of limp mode when the error code is thrown. The FI light could be caused by a number of things though. What's the warranty like in Australia? – hillsons May 22 '13 at 3:15
2 Years. Should still be good to take in – MeltingDog May 22 '13 at 4:38
