So my front brake is messed up..


Attempting to engage the front brake and the lever is very very stiff and has a strong pulsation to it. When walking with the bike this does not happen, only when above about 5mph.. The ABS check comes on when starting the bike like normal and when pulling out it goes away like normal.



The back brake is fine.


For what its worth I hand washed the bike, and decided to adjust the rear preload slightly stiffer then parked it in the garage.. Did I get water or air in the line? Did I pinch a brake or electric ABS line somewhere adjusting the preload? Visually everything seems fine..


Dealer is closed until Tuesday, if anyone has ideas or suggestions on what I can check I would appreciate it.


Thanks

Now that I thought about it more. Maybe a better way to explain it, it feels like ABS is activating each time I grab the front brake.

To my untrained eye it seems ok. The bolt holding it in place is still tight. I tried clearing it with water and hit the sensor with compressed air incase there was dirt there, no luck..

Update incase this happens to anyone else. The ABS control module failed. Weird thing is it only malfunctioned between 5 and 20 MPH, above that it worked as normal.


1035$ part.



Really really glad I got the extended warranty...

Ok, so a month later and my bike still isn't fixed... The dealer installed a new ABS module, replaced the ABS sensors.


ABS is always on between speeds 5-30MPH above that it functions as normal.. At this point I don't know what to do and they seem perplexed as well...



Any ideas on what recourse I might have?
