New Member Flashing ABS/Brake warning
Hi Everyone I am a new member based in Basingstoke, England so I would like to say hello in the first instance.
Secondly, my bike (K1200GT, 2004) has been laid up for a few months and when I took it out again recently it started fine, ran ok but then after a few miles the ABS light started flashing and the General Warning light came on too. The brakes seemed to be operating normally so I continued for a while to see if it would clear but it didn't.
After a bit of on-line research it looked like it might have been the battery failing, (it is about seven years old now) in any case I changed the battery and everything is fine once again and no other problems.
So, I would say if you get such problems, don't go for the expensive 'it must be an ABS/Servo problem straight away, test and if necessary change the battery, it could be as simple as that.
