how could he ride the next day if his dry breaks were not seated? dont get to far on the pressure tank.
how would his dry breaks just come loose? if he does not know where or what they are he has not taken them apart and not properly seated them. Its an 05 cant blame the factory. Just my 2 cents the fuel light dont blink on these bikes you got and electrical problem some where
the consistant 8 blinks is a sign of more than a dry break problem and a short would not be consistant like that and pop a fuse by now

Good luck with this post your findings

I'm not the first to have this problem. I did a search of this website and found thread below. I can't find loose wire in mine so I sent him an e-mail. Called local Yamaha shops and not getting much help so far today, will keep trying. Thanks

Local Yami shop ain't going to be any help here. I will go ohm mine out at the sender and see what I get. I use die electric/Spelling? grease on all of my connectors, Like the stuff you use on spark plug boots to keep corrosion to a minium. I would plug and un plug each conector a few times just to make sure the problem isn't a bad connection .

I'm going to put it back together (haven't pulled pump out yet), clean and add silicon di-electric to all connections, fill tank and pour in some Chevron Techroline fuel system cleaner
concentrate in it. I'm hoping the sender is just contaminated with sulfur (common issue with cars) and that stuff cleans it up real good. I'll keep ya'll posted, I hope that fixes it. Thanks xharleyrdr

Sorry it wasn't the drybreaks. That's such an easy fix (99.9% of the time).

Update, took bike into dealer today for both recalls ( t/p and crank sensors) and for them to check out why fuel light flashes. Should know something by next week. I was tempted not to take it in so I could ride during spring break, o well. Turns out the service manager lives around the block from me!

If the light flashes 8 times then stops for a couple of seconds then blinks again 8 times and keeps on doing this it is a faulty fuel sending unit. I just went thru the same thing with mine and took it all apart and it tested OK electrically but as soon as I replaced it and ran the engine for a few minutes all was back to normal. This is a common problem with the fuel sending units on these bikes. Fairly easy to do and costs about $65.00-$70.00 us dollars

Don't know if you noticed or not skinny, but this post is 3 years old and the poster hasn't been here in 2 years.

Interesting (and slightly entertaining thread)
I actually have the exact same 8 blinking sequence problem on my fuel light.

I suspect too that it's just a flaw with these fuel pumps.
Not sure how I can fix it for $65 or $70 us dollars tho?
