Re: zapper

Probably bad shock... They only last so long on the big beast..

As far as the ABS goes, Make sure your battery has a good charge, A less than optimal battery voltage will trigger an ABS fault.. Also Look in the Hall of Wisdom to find troubleshooting procedures for the ABS....

There is also a reset procedure to clear the ABS if it's really locked out..

Start with battery and go from there.

Good Luck,

John

Re: zapper

Hey, Don - does this description match the location and repair where you made your speedo fix??

"I removed the right side battery cover panel and taped a small plug in transformer next to the speed sensor, This would give a speedo reading with the bike stationary. Then I started wiggling the wires and immediately found the problem.

The sensor wire is tie-wrapped to the brake line to the rear wheel. Where the wire was fastened to the forward end of the rubber hose to the rear caliper, the sharp edge of the metal hose end had nearly cut through one of the wires. I spliced the wire, used heat shrink tubing on it, then put a piece of plastic tubing over it and re-fastened it to the hose."

Did you check the front and rear resevoir? They get low relative to brake pad wear, as the pad wears the level goes down. It does not take much to make the lights flash.

Re: zapper

My money is on your CC switch on the clutch lever going out of adjustment. There is a slight chance you may be rolling the throttle forward when (during) hitting the bump and knocking the cruise off, but all the trouble I had with my cruise started just as you describe. After complete loss of the cruise in the middle of a 5,000+ mile trip it turned out to be the clutch switch out of rig. Loosen the switch (under the switch cover) and move it ALL the way forward (I think, you'd better check in the HOW). I'll bet you'll fix it with that.

The battery is most likely your cause of the flashing ABS lights. If it's a wet cell over a year or so old, it's most likely on it's way out. I found that an Odyssey PC-680 will solve that issue for years at a time and about $50 less than a new gel battery from the dealer will cost.

As for the speedo, better take up Dick's track on that one. Good luck getting the sniggles ironed out on your bike, you'll have an absolute blast on it once you do.

The bike in the OP is a 2000. 1999s, 2000s, and early 2001s have ABSII, which doesn't have a system to monitor the reserviors for fluid level. It appears that most of the flashing ABS lights occur from partially discharged battery and lack of brake line flushing. With the ABSII system, there probably isn't such a thing as too much flushing, but once a year will probably do it. Since there's no linked system, power boost, etc. like on the newer models, the ABSII system is easy to flush. Four Speedbleeders and it's even easier.
