Engine light flash

Hi to all,
I just came into possession of a beautiful 08 1000rr with under 8500 miles and after ridding under 300 miles myself the engine light flashes twice then comes the super ruff idle. I've checked all fluids and oil their fine the bike has PC3 USB, velocity stacks, full yosh r77, the problem started this morning during warm up before my ride...any ideas/suggestions
Thanks

Maybe wire is loose somewhere. Check the battery wires ( positive and negative) tight them up.

That isn't going to cure your problem, just like a car if you disconnect the battery for a while it will reset the memory but after a certain amount of drive cycles the light will come back on if it has a faulty sensor, meaning it will do the same thing if its a hard code bad tps, or iac sensor, fuel injector or whatever for that matter.

Could be a loose connection as well.

If/when the flashing returns d/l a free pdf copy of the 08 owners manual and look up what the fault code is telling you.

I do plan on bringing it in for a check up but at least I know I can ride it to the shop without limping...thanks for the advice
