2015 onwards ABS
on: September 28, 2018, 09:24:34 PM
Just done a ride through Spain to Gibraltar and back, 3000 odd miles... During that time I have had a few occasions to apply the brakes from speed harder than normal. I am a bit concerned that more than once the front wheel locked up, with no ABS and no pulse feel through the brake lever. Funny thing is, I also had to brake from low speed on the dreaded Spanish white lines, and the ABS did work with the pulse sensation through the lever.
Interested to hear comments, bike is booked in at dealer next week, but I can hear already that they cannot find anything wrong!
BTW, no ABS warning lights, everything appears normal, but I don't expect a front wheel lock up when doing an emergency stop from around 50mph....
Anyone had anything similar?
