Thanks XS29L9B. Going to check mine soon.
The one marked with red arrowHi lads. I posted up a thread on this exact problem I'm having. Got some very helpful pointers but still have difficulty locating the tester socket that seems to be the problem. Could you have a look at the attached pics and point it out.. going by description it's one of these two. Cheers.
Appreciate that. So just take off the housing and solder each wire directly?The one marked with red arrowHi lads. I posted up a thread on this exact problem I'm having.

Thanks lads. By the looks of things someone else has already been in here before me..
I did the harness fix on a 2000 CBR1100xx. The symptoms were an FI light on all the time, sometimes dim, sometimes bright, FI light flashing dim and bright when turn signal indicator was on. FI light getting brighter when the front brake lever was pulled? Weird. Engine dying when riding in town when the radiator fan came on. Bike would restart, but stumble then die at the next traffic light. The wiring loom at the block looked good. No moisture. The cap on the block also looked good, I was getting worried, but continued. I found that the copper strands in one of the large green wires was a little discolored which was a good sign that something was going on. Sure enough after completing the repair, No More FI light! Problem solved! Thank you for the great post!Re: 1999-2000 Honda CBR XX Flashing FI Light Fix
I ballsed up the first attachment above (414) this is what it should have shown

This is the hardwire method that you may want to use first rather than last as it is a more permanent fix.
The block has 20 poles, 19 wires go into it and within the male portion of the block it joins one row of 10 on the one side (all green earth related wires)and 3 lots of 3 on the other side with one unused terminal. All confirmed with a multimeter.
Cut the wires off the connector on the 3x3 side first..they are in their own colours so you don't get to mix them up.
When I stripped the insulation off the copper wire was black for a fair way up, there isn't really enough length to try and cut them back to perfect shiny copper so I cleaned them with a small wire brush and contact cleaner. Soldered the three wires together then used 2 layers of heatshrink tubing to seal them

For the main block of 10 the easiest way is to leave the main thicker earth on its own, solder the remaining 9 into three blocks of three. Used a small piece of heatshrink to hold all of them together then dipped them into a "thimble" full of heated/melted solder, sprayed a bit of water on it to cool it down and ended up with all ten soldered together.
Heatshrinked them, covered everthing in silicone grease and taped everything up to the main loom using self amalging rubber tape to seal it.

Started first time, FI light hasn't come on and hopefully thats it. I can see that when it does start to go you might as well hardwire it. If damp has got into the terminals it has also got into the actual wire and connections as well which you can't clean up so it is going to go again anyway.
Fairly easy to do, just take your time, it can be done on your own as I did but would have been easier to have an extra pair of hands to hold the wires in the right position when you are soldering.
