K-ACT ABS Servicing Precautions
There are a number of important precautions that should
be followed servicing the K-ACT ABS.
K-ACT ABS does not function if the battery is discharged.
When driving with an insufficiently charged battery,
K-ACT ABS may not function. Keep the battery in good
This K-ACT ABS is designed to be used with a 12 V
sealed battery as its power source.
other battery except for a 12 V sealed battery as a power
Do not reverse the battery cable connections. This will
damage the K-ACT ABS hydraulic unit.
To prevent damage to the K-ACT ABS parts, do not dis-
connect the battery cables or any other electrical connec-
tions when the ignition switch is ON or while the engine is
Take care not to short the leads that are directly con-
nected to the battery positive (+) terminal to the chassis
Do not turn the ignition switch ON while any of the K-ACT
ABS electrical connectors are disconnected. The K-ACT
ABS hydraulic unit memorizes service codes.
Do not spray water on the electrical parts, K-ACT ABS
parts, connectors, leads and wiring.
If a transceiver is installed on the motorcycle, make sure
that the operation of the K-ACT ABS is not influenced
by electric wave radiated from the antenna. Locate the
antenna as far as possible away from the K-ACT ABS
Whenever the K-ACT ABS electrical connections are to
be disconnected, first turn off the ignition switch.
The K-ACT ABS parts should never be struck sharply, as
with a hammer, or allowed to fall on a hard surface. Such
a shock to the parts can damage them.
The K-ACT ABS parts cannot be disassembled. Even if
a fault is found, do not try to disassemble and repair the
K-ACT ABS parts, replace it.
The K-ACT ABS has many brake lines, pipes, and leads.
And the K-ACT ABS cannot detect problems with the con-
ventional braking system (brake disc wear, unevenly worn
brake pad, and other mechanical faults). To prevent trou-
ble, check the brake lines and pipes for correct routing
and connection, the wiring for correct routing, and the
brakes for proper braking power. Be sure to check for
fluid leakage, and bleed the brake line thoroughly.
If any of the brake line fittings, including the K-ACT
ABS hydraulic unit joint nuts, or the bleed valve is
opened at any time, the air must be bled completely
from the brake line.
Do not ride the motorcycle with air in the brake line,
or the K-ACT ABS could malfunction.
Do not use any
