Flashing Brake Light Warning

My battery was down due to non-usage. I recharged the battery and when I started the bike, the brake failure light was on I disconnected the negative post for 15-20 minutes thinking that this would solve the problem but now I have a flashing brake failure warning light. Brakes seem to be working fine and didn't have any previous problem. Bike was not used for two months. Anyone have any solution??

Re: Flashing Brake Light Warning

Is the Brake Failure light flashing after you have ridden the bike? It is supposed to flash until you ride it up to about 2 miles per hour and then go off. If the flashing does not stop at that point, you probably do have a problem, but from your explanation it sounds like the warning may be flashing while the bike is still be on the stand, which is perfectly normal.
