Red flashing light question????

Before you get excited, let me explain......

Friday I returned to SLC to pick up the beerburner. Sat morning I removed the front tire and had it replaced, after reinstalation, fired her up and got the blinking lights, went to the Sto and got some fluid, filled everything up. Now I have the "Brake Failure" light still flashing. The bike was on charge the week I was gone, and it fired right up no hesitation. but I still have the flashing light. I just rode from SLC to CO Sprgs, no problems, bike runs fine, stops on a dime, but the light is still flashing. ANY IDEAS????

I would look at the sensor on the wheel, make sure it did not get moved when the wheel was taken off. Make sure the connection is tight and the wire are not broken. Also check the sensor wheel (disc with all the slots in it near the center of the wheel) to make sure it did not get bent while it was off the bike.

Re: Red flashing light question????

Is there anyone around you that has a GS-911 handy? It still could be a low level in the reservoir. Did you happen to notice a small puddle under the right side of the bike from a drain tube? I have seen them siphon when the front is jacked up, leaving the level low.

Make sue you check both compartments of the rear reservoir.

HTH,

Ron

Re: Red flashing light question????

I arrived at Griff's today, and was telling about the light. So snap he puts the GS911 on and presto! No battery problems! Get a fault on the ABS senser, so Griff pulled the sensor, and low and behold the sensor is worn about 1/8 inch.

So when I arrive home I will change the sensor and find out why it is worn! I am wondering if something is in the wrong place somehow, or if a spacer is worn for some reason?

Well it is not over yet, but I am a few miles closer to home!

I should start that way tomorrow!! I am still on my way home from CCR! (with the "BEERBURNER" LOL
