I think it was your threads I kept running across with abs issues. Gotta check a few things. Not had time yet.

Nothing special at all but make sure that you get the right thickness. You may have to grind a stainless washer thinner.

G'day,

Yeah I just skipped the washers. I'm bound to find something at hardware store for less than $5 each...

ABS sensor replaced. No more dash light.
Bike running great, feels great. Loving it.

Now the ABS sensor...
Victory service manual completely wrong.
It says just remove the bolt and disconnect sensor wire under side cover.
1) Bolt is behind swingarm so you can't just remove it.
2) Sensor plugs in under the seat top center of bike not under the side cover.

Trick I learned was instead of fully removing the wheel just loosening it and sliding it backwards then there is just enough wiggle to access the bolt. Pull sensor and spacers and replace. Then force wheel hard forward pulling on the adjusters to maintain alignment that was already set while tightening axle to spec or in my case just gutentight because I wasn't going to drop suspension to get torque wrench on it.

I routed the wire straight out and on opposite side of swingarm away from all the moving stuff that it is next to in the stock location with a zip tie to keep it on swingarm and away from muffler.

All good. I still don't know how it was caught and chewed up creating this issue. Gonna find someone good at soldering to put the cable back together as a backup.
