    Quick question for zx6/10 owners

    when you turn on the ignition under the riders seat theres a black exhaust servo (a round metal disc with two cables attached) does it spin round and back again once you turn on the ignition? I cant remember and I think mines kaput

    red fi light stays lit too,meaning an error somewhere

    My 08 did... I disconnected the wires though.. but yes the motor still turned. If it doesnt you will get an fi light like you say.

    Seemslike its dead then,fi light has been on a while tbh but havnt noticed any lost performance,ill try n pick one up thanks for telling me

    just wanted to add I can still hear the whine of the fuel pump when you turn on ignition but cant see any movement from the exhaust servo

    You can buy a thing which stops the FI light from coming on for the exhaust servo.

    Almost all aftermarket systems do not have a function for the servo, so it is removed completely. I think it's just for noise / emission on the standard system however.

    yeah you can,i managed to pickup a second hand unit for £20,i opened mine up and it spins but soon as you put any load on the motor inside it it stops so maybe its burnt out
