I have a YOSHI on mine and I don't think I have the servo eliminator.. I think my FI light has only been on once or twice in the past.. usually sorts itself out with a restart.

I had a similar issue. I had had an FI servo bracket on the bike for years and no FI light. One random day it started blinking on and off but the bike ran and idled fine. I pulled the FI light code for and it was something to do with the servo so I bought a servo buddy servo eliminator and it fixed everything after I put it in.

Woah, slow down folks. The F1 light comes on when the O2 sensor on the stock pipes isn't picking up the signal. Now that your stock pipe has been replaced the F1 light will always be on.

Mine has been on for 3 years since I put in my Jardine pipe. You'll learn to ignore it!

1)there is no 02 sensor on the 05-06 USDM ZX6R.
2)it's an FI light for Fault Indicator, not F1(for some reason the kawi owner's manual says it's for fuel injection but most every other manufacturer i've seen refers to it as Fault Indicator in theirs.)
3)the FI light comes on when you buy an aftermarket exhaust because removed the cables that open and close the valve right before the factory muffler, and you removed the valve itself. Now the servo that controls that valve spins freely under rider's seat and the ECU thinks there is an issue with the bike, triggering an FI light. Most aftermarket pipes come with a bracket you put on the servo and it limits how many degrees it can spin and it tricks the bike into thinking everything is in order. You can make one with like $4 worth of stuff from home depot.
4)You should fix your FI light. Unless you regularly pull the fault codes, if there is an actual issue with the bike, you won't know because your light's always on.

I had an issue similar to the OP's and removing the servo and putting in a servo buddy remedied the issue.
