Weird ABS Problem

My 2003 K1200lt has this problem where It passes the self checks and low speed test fine but about 5-10 minutes after running the brake fail light starts 4x flashing and the warning light is steady on. The ABS continues to work for a few minutes and then stops working and brakes are manual. I replaced the battery and got real excited because everthing worked for about 45 minutes and started its bad business again. Its almost like the thing gets warmed up real good and then something causes the problem. Any ideas?

Re: Weird ABS Problem

Unfortunately that means one of your circuits (front or rear) has failed and gone into residual braking. Really need a read out from a dealer or GS-911 to know more (like a fault code) but it is not a failure that will fix itself.

You can check the "Bike Talk" forum here and look at the "Registry of GS-911 users" to see if anyone is nearby you.
