So I just replaced my tires and noticed that the pads are about half worn out.
This explains my intermitted Brake Failure warning.
So I run and get some DOT4 and plan on adding. I get the cap off and see the brown gear oil looking crap in the res.
I have a brain storming idea to flush the system...
I have done this on many, many bikes... Without ABS.
I completely drain the system of every drop of fluid...
Then I top off the res. and begin vaccuuming the fluid to the calipers.
I am not moving anything...
OK, no big deal, I will push the fluid to the res.
I fill up the pump and start. Watching the res., I am wondering where is all the new fluid going?
Easily, I have pushed half a pint.
I look at the back of the bike and there is a puddle on the floor... WTF?
I guess I have enough back in.
So I top off the res. and bleed the air from the lines.
Take it for the test run.
Ten miles everything is working normal and no more warning lights.
I gotta get a manual.
Cleaning the garage floor sucks.
