Anti-Lock Brake System (Equipped Models)
Air in the brake lines diminish braking performance
and can cause an accident resulting in injury or
death. If any of the brake line fittings, including the
ABS hydraulic unit joint nuts, or the bleed valve is
opened at any time, the air must be bled completely
from the brake line. If the brake lever has a soft
or "spongy" feeling mushy when it is applied, there
might be air in the brake lines or the brake may be
defective. Do not operate the vehicle and service
the brake system immediately.
Do not ride the motorcycle with air in the brake line,
or the ABS could malfunction.
The yellow ABS indicator (LED) [A] may light if the
tire pressure is incorrect, a non-recommended tire is
installed, or the wheel is deformed. If the indicator light
lights, remedy the problem and clear the service code.
Use of non-recommended tires may cause malfunc-
tioning of ABS and can lead to extended braking
distance resulting in an accident causing serious
injury or death. Always use recommended stan-
dard tires for this motorcycle.
