Re: Intro and Advice
There are several different reasons for the ABS failure lights to flash. The 2K model like was previously stated will brake normally even without the ABS module working.
The later years with the power assisted linked brake abs system...a real pain in the wallet if it fails, has to be fixed before you can ride the bike. Did the owner make note of the failure, or was this something the Dealer indicated? I have a 2K also, and have had the failure when my battery was low. I mean there was enough juice to kick it over and start, but not enough to make the ABS happy, also like was already stated, drove it down the road a ways, stopped, turned off the key and back on, restart the bike and it worked perfect. low brake fluid will do it, abs sensor on the wheels misaligned or damaged will cause it also. My bet would be needs a new battery, probably sat on a trickle charger all winter. This bike is very sensitive to low battery voltage. At 3K for the bike, you can get a lot of enjoyment out of it.
