Not sure what I did wrong here. It started with the triangle light coming on when I used the rear brake. I've been riding with minimal use of the rear brake, but decided to follow some of the suggestions I'd received in a prior post. I first replaced the battery which was a bit long of tooth anyway. Took it for a ride and still have the problem. I then topped off both back reservoirs. Took it for a ride, and still the same problem. Time to tear the old girl apart and replace the rear brake switch which I had ordered previously. What a pain. Set the switch at 14mm as measured by my 14mm wrench. Turned the ignition on and AW SHIP!!!!!! Now when I touch either brake, the ABS starts to squeal and won't shut off until I turn the key off. I'm not sure where to look for this. The brake light follows the pedal movement (Rear) light on when down and off when up. (Front) light on when squeezed, off when released. Does anyone have an idea what I might have done wrong? It does the same whether the engine is running or not. Need help please...I just sold my other tourer and don't want to ride my 750 Virago from Illinois to Billings, Montana and back.
