I haven't had time to try the ABS reset procedure yet....will in the next week or so..... In the mean time....My ABS lights are cycling back and forth. Ive checked the fluid in the reservoirs and brake pad material.....all seems OK.

So,..after dark,....the red ABS lights, the blue high beam light and the Yellow Cruise control light are annoyingly bright.....

Is there some way to reduce the brightness of these?

I figure the last resort will be to keep a strip of Static cling vinyl window tint in the "oddments" box....and if I am going to ride at night,....just lay the tint strip on top of the affending indicator lights.

If you don't mind doing your own work, you could always rig a switch or optical sensor to plug in a resiter to the dash lights in question to dim them. Or use a lower wattage replacement bulb or LED equivilant bulb. Many LED bulbs come in 1, 4, 6, 8, etc. LEDs in a cluster. One of them should be dim enough for night view and bright enough to be seen in daylight.

I bought a set of bulbs recently from SuperbrightLEDs.Com for my underwing marker lights. They were only $3 a piece in blue, but you can get white, red, amber, etc. colors to fit your needs.

I cut a rectangle of cling tint and leave it in place, you can see the lights in daytime as well as night. Only you know for sure what it is!

Where did you find your cling tint?

I had a roll of the stuff,...but my storage unit was broken into and they grabbed it (along with 30 pounds of Freon, Many special tools, a home theater system, Antique Ceiling fan, a complete tool chest with tools for home construction for Habitat for Humanity and Many other things I havent even missed yet I am sure)

Got mine at Pep Boys. Several sheets were in the package and I only needed a piece of one for the bike. I have no idea where the rest of it is, otherwise I would give it to you.

Lee, thanks for the lead

Dave, just to clarify,....we are talking about a heavy vinyl "Cling" tint,...that can be removed any time you want versus the standard thin plastic film with a water activated adhesive backing.
