We're thinking along the same lines (scary) I have new pads on the shelf, I may just change to see what's what. Never had this issue though, so it just seems odd. I had a leak somewhere on teh front left caliper, pulled it appart, blead the brakes so the Dot-4 level is good. But will double check the rear..Thanks

Keep the battery on the tender, consistantly above 13V. So thats not it, but I will check the rear...Could it be a simple fix??????????????????????? Na, can't be its an LT!

If restarting clears the fault, it probably won't give a reading. If key off, key on doesn't reset the system, it should be able to read the fault.
Since restarting resets the system, sure could be a wheel sensor. The test meter will tell you front or rear.
What do you mean I don't have fluid monitors? Of coarse I do, what do you think the wifes job is! Think, go get me a beer, women! (NOTE: not to be repeated in her presence!) The system resets itself every time. (its actually happened three times in the last two months) Suspect #1- DOT-4 level of the rear, #2- Pads. As for the connection of a test meter....lets hope I don't have to get to that point..She's been a good girl!
Oh, by the way.....NICE BIKE! (mine is better)
