Hi, Mad problems with my K1200R Sport

Hi from Northern Ireland!

I'm having some strange problems with my K1200R Sport.

Firstly the ABS pump is booked into be rebuilt as the motor is fried on it, that's not the strange problem though, the strange problem is the gauges.

Out for a ride today and noticed that the speedo was surging up and down, I stopped and saw that although I was stopped dead, the odometer was gaining roughly a mile every second, I switched off and restarted and all was good for about 15 miles then it did the same thing, so basically my bike gained nearly 1000 miles in about 25 minutes!

Is it likely to be a cluster problem or deeper in the ECU? The bike is running like a watch.

Gauges are fine. A friend had it happen to his when his ABS went bad. After the rebuild all was back to normal.

Sounds like a bad ABS sensor.

I’ve had my ABS unit go belly up they were prone to being damaged by jarring going over potholes in the road have always regretted having it repaired loved it without ABS but just couldn’t guarantee it would carry on like it.

The only time I have had trouble with the gauges the battery was on the blink.

Check with modulemaster.com - heard they were finally rebuilding servo units, but there is a backlog.

Check the wheel speed sensor in the rear. It controls the speedo, the odo and the abs. I took mine out last week to keep safe while I replaced the rear brake rotor, then something heavy fell, landed on top of it and killed it. Before I knew it was dead I put it back in and went for a ride to discover the speedo, odo and abs do not work and the brake failure light is on. Otherwise the bike is rideable and all seems fine. What you describe might be your sensor dying a slow death and going a little haywire on its way out.
