Brake Warning Poll

Has your bike broken the warning wire on the brake pad, causing a fault without needing pads?

Besides the yes and no, you'll be able to choose which set of pads.

Grif, since you are doing this, why don't you do a poll on EWS failures. Since I had the software upgrade, every time I disc. the battery, I get an EWS error as soon as the battery is reconnected, and the ignition is turned on. One I cycle the ignition, I have absolutely no problems until the battery is disconnected again. LoneStar checked for codes and found none.

On the front, only the right side has the warning sensor. When mine faulted, my dealer replaced both sides under warranty.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Y'all know you start a poll anytime you want?

Hit New Thread, type in the title and body. Then scroll down and you'll see post a poll. Click it, put the number of spaces (like 2 for yes and no) you want to add to the poll, then hit submit.

It will take you to another page where you can put in the poll info in the spaces you selected on the previous page. Be sure to check if you want multiple picks on the poll (like "yes" to high idle and the ability to click the year).

If you screw up the poll, like I did more than once, you can delete the post.

Thanks for playing!

Of course you can never have every scenario there...

Mine went the other way. No warning and the pads were worn slap out! (rear)

I did do a "how to" in case anyone didn't see it.

Link is here.
