Anti-Lock Brake System
The yellow ABS indicator light (LED) [A] and yellow
warning indicator light (LED) [B]/white KIBS indicator
light (LED) [C] may go on or blink if the tire pressure is
incorrect, a non-recommended tire is installed, or the
wheel is deformed. If the indicator light (LED) goes on or
blinks, 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.
The yellow ABS indicator light (LED) may come on if the
engine is run with the motorcycle on a stand and the trans-
mission in gear. If the indicator light comes on, just turn
the ignition switch off, then clear service code B42, which
indicates a "Faulty front wheel rotation sensor."
When the ABS operates, the ABS makes noise and the
rider feels the reaction force on the brake lever and brake
pedal. This is a normal condition. It informs the rider that
the ABS is operating normally.
Service codes detected once by the ABS hydraulic unit
will be memorized in the ABS hydraulic unit.
A fully charged battery is a must for conducting reliable
self-diagnosis. Test run the motorcycle at a speed of
more than 20 km/h (12 mph) to see that the yellow ABS
indicator light (LED) and yellow warning indicator light
(LED)/white KIBS indicator light (LED) do not go on or
blink. Finally, test run the motorcycle at a speed of more
than 30 km/h (20 mph) and brake suddenly to see that
the motorcycle stops without loss of steering control and
the ABS operates normally (The reaction force generated
is felt in the brake lever and pedal.). This completes the
