Unhappy 2000 Lt Abs

Just reinstalled the final drive after a bearing failure. Took it out for a test drive and after about 10 blocks it started doing the ABS wig wag. Stopped and shut the bike off restarted and went about 200 yards wig wag again. Now it does it from the start everytime. Will disconnecting the battery help? Do I need to reset the computer and check the codes? I dont have a code reader and the closest dealer is 200 miles. Any other ideas for resolving the problem?

I guess there is always the black tape over the lights.

Also many thanks to CharlieVT for his help with my final drive.

Re: 2000 Lt Abs

Did you check the clearance on the abs sensor on the rear drive after re-installing it?
Fluid levels up? Check your manual for the setup on the abs sensor setup/adjustment.
Yours being a 2000 model has a much simpler abs setup...

Re: 2000 Lt Abs

Could the rear wheel sensor have been disturbed?

Re: 2000 Lt Abs

2000 LT should have ABSII . With ABSII *the only* fault which resets itself without "Moditec" or manual resetting of fault codes is "Low battery voltage" - most likely caused by failing battery.

So if you have experienced the situation where the "wigwag" was on, but resetted in the next start - it was caused by low voltage. ALL OTHER failures must be resetted. Disconnecting battery does not do the trick.

Born to be wild so why not

Re: 2000 Lt Abs


Alternate method of resetting abs. I used it, it works.

Revision A


The second link has a description of the fault codes, which is probably accurate, but I cannot vouch for it as I have only seen the dreaded #7 failure. I don't think the reset material in the second link is relevant to the LT.
