I can't find the code you mention here listed in the Suppliment Manual.
"flashing one short one long and two short", doesn't show up here.
This is what does show: Item and code.
Throttle Sensor - one long, one short.
Air Temp sensor - one long, two short.
Engine Temp Sensor - one long, three short.
Atmospheric Press Sensor - two long, one short.
Starter switch - two long, two short.
Ignition Pulse - 2 long, three short.
CPU Memory - three long, one short.
Let us know what you find, each code has an "action" in the manual,
too much typing for this kid, but let us know what code.

My name is Budgie Burgess and I reside in South Africa Cape Town and Iím the proud owner of 1983 Gpz Kawasaki ZX 1100 A2. This bike has served me well all these years up until now I have replaced the rings, valve stem oil seals and one exhaust valve and have also replaced the control unit back in 1986 due to the silly way the unit was mounted in the rear of the bike, the vibration and bounce ruined the electronics. However back to now, my problem is the bike will start and when the temperature is right off I go until about a kilometer the bike decides to shut off and come back on again repeatedly, sometimes my fuel gauge goes off as well which tells me the bike is now completely dead. After stopping on the side of the road removing the side covers and checking the obvious namely fuses, solenoids and starter solenoid I cannot suspect anything particularly wrong other than the control unit flashing one short one long and two short but my DFI warning has been doing this for the best part of 12years, it comes and disappears. I have recently replaced the battery with one of those Taiwanese batteries that start generators for the pinch of the price of the original one (Battery Type PE12V18) a mate of mine has put one of these batteries in his 1981 XS1100 Yamaha and it works like a bomb, which encouraged me to buy one as well. Whilst riding the bike I checked the charge rate on the rev counter and show a reading of just; just behind 14V. This to me is fine.
My repair manual and my flash codes for the DFI were destroyed in a fire and I cannot get proper help, the bike Macs where I live only want to work on todayís bikes which is sad really, one Mac suggest to remove the fuel injection and fit 1000J carbs on! Why! The bike has been going so well, until now that is. I did put smooth bore carbs on once but boy was that a pain in the ass. I had to constantly carry a plastic bag with me to cover the K&N filters in case of rain,the bikeís performance would vary depending on the weather. Anyway, Iím sure you will direct me to a solution or to another link or someone who has the Control Unit flash codes, or just guide me to where I should inspect.
