I've searched on here and elsewhere but everyone has a different view on what works and what doesn't..

I'm waiting for my two brothers exhaust to be delivered today, on the install instructions it shows to remove the servo cables but does not mention anything about a block plate/what to do with the servo afterwards..

So am I right saying that once I've removed the cables and put the new slip-on onto the bike, I will have the FI light on ?

I'm not really fussed about removing the servo motor, but some thing by leaving it there the FI light will not come on yet others say it will as the cables obviously are not present.

Do I need some sort of locking plate for the servo? or is it just easier to buy a servo buddy? *All I'm after is no FI light and the easiest solution.

Just remove the cables AND the servo motor entirely and plug in a servo buddy.

I got mine for $35 shipped off a member on here. 09ZX6R

Thanks for the clarification :)

I'm looking into the Servo buddy, posted in the wanted section for one :)

+ There may be a plate but from what the instructions show it just shows as remove, so when i pick it up i'll check the contents and see.. but if there is, how does the plate work?

also if i leave the FI light on for a few days, will this cause issues or limit power etc?

The plate just allows the servo motor to index itself and tricks the ECU into thinking its working normally.

No, the FI light can remain on indefinitely with no negative consequences.

Perfect, the help is much appreciated! :)

I'll hold off on the servo buddy until I find if there's a plate included in the kit.

Otherwise i'll see if I can source one on here/online.

I pulled my servo cables when I installed the exhaust on my '12 and its fine. I thought you actually had to remove the servo it's self to make the light come on?

I believe the 09+ models are different. Previous models require either a plate or a servo buddy to keep the light off.

Correct, on the OP's 2008 year model, removing the servo cables will cause an FI light. On year models 2009 and up, removing them does not cause an FI light.
