I think this is the same issue that brought me to this forum in the first place. The difference is, I'm sure now. Started the bike tonight to warm it up before coming home from work. It died and I noticed that both the oil and FI light were on. The FI light blinked once and then went out but the oil light stayed on. I think the oil light coming on is normal but I don't know about the codes for the FI. What does one blink mean?

Here is the list FI Codes:

If FI (Fault Indicator) light comes on pull over but DO NOT shut bike off. Put in neutral and put side stand down, RPM’s below 1500. This signals the ECM to send the error code to the FI light. Count the number of long and short flashes. This will give you the error code.

If you shut the bike off the error code is lost - sort of. It will be retained in the ECM but it is harder to get out. If the bike stops and the will not restart you can get the FI light to flash the error code by cranking the engine for 10 seconds. The FI light will then flash the error code.

Long Blink = 10 Short Blink = 1
i.e. long long long short short short = 33 check error code 33

Number of MIL blinks .Symptoms .Cause

There are long and short blinks, count how many long and short blinks, long equals 10 short equals 1, 2 long 3 short is code 23 ETC.

I started the bike, letting it warm up. It died and, like I said, the oil light was on and so was the FI. Then the FI blinked once and went out. Think the oil light was still on. Then I restarted the bike. Am I doing it right?

you are supposed to have the bike on (at least the ignition) and be in nuteral. If the bike was running it had to be in nuteral. If the F1 light went out there was probably no code detected. The oil light may stay on anyway if the engine dies.

Did you try to restart the engine?

It was in neutral, it died, then the FI light flashed.

I was able to restart it. To be honest, I think I have a bad connection in one of the switches on the right side. I want to break into it and clean it up but I am a little fearful of flying springs, etc.
A dirty starter switch wouldn't cause it to die after started. Would prevent it from starting in the first place. What year is your wing. Any work been done to it recently?

It's an '06. I know that the r.hand switches need to be cleaned. But you are right, it wouldn't just die from this unless I touched them, which I didn't.

Just for giggles, when you do get it started and running, play/ jiggle with the kill switch without turning it to a kill position. There has been some talk about pre 06 Wings having kill switch contact problems.
