      Gt650 commet

      Hello everyone,

      I am a new member with some bike issues, I have a 2008 GT 650 comet, naked one, The bike was running absolutely spot-on before I stored it over the winter, I taken the battery off and recharged it, I know I keep getting the dreaded F1 light and it won’t start ,

      any help would be appreciated guys n girls as I have NO CLUE as to why or what’s happening

      Have you checked the forum for a 2008-2010 efi manual ? There is a page that shows you how to trick the ECU to display diagnostic code on the dash.

      Instead of a switch, people sometimes put a paper clip across the 2 pins under the pillion seat , but caution when you do this though!

      F1 light shouldn’t be there. The EFi dash is only for the EFi machines with an EFi ECU

      So if you have a carby bike, then you have a CDI which has simpler electronics, it would require a Carby Dash.  Tell us the part number on your CDI if you can and also if possible upload a picture of your carbs between the engine on this site.
