Default ABS light

I'm having an intermittent issue with ALS light coming on. It has happened a few times now and the only things I can relate to it is heat. All 3 times the temp was above 90 and after the bike had cooled it reset and went out. I've searched and my symptoms are not like anyone else describes. I'm assuming that they relay is getting hot and opening up over the sensor/ring being dirty as it is intermittent and resets after everything cools off after riding.

Another day above 90 today to ride home in so we'll see if it continues.

Normally it is the space of the ABS sensor, or dirt .... But replacement is the most common fix, there expensive though ....

Sometimes some brake cleaner spray can clean the sensor to clear the ABS light.

Some people remove or disable the ABS on purpose because they don't want it. I don't have it on either of my bikes and don't miss it a bit. Of course I've never had ABS on a bike so maybe I just don't know what I'm missing.

Vision's have a linked braking system if I remember right. That might be okay as long as both wheel brake in proportion to the stopping power they have. IE. more up front. Maybe they are linked only with the foot brake. Maybe someone with one will chime in although it's not really relevant to this issue.

Remove sensor and clean off, clean the disc, check the spacing of sensor to the disc.

An extra spacer on the sensor might be all you need. Seen that in a lot of threads where they couldn't find any cause that made sense.

Hasn't come back on, but I have not done anything to it yet either, life can get in the way. Tuesday is my next day off and I plan to clean it as I prep for a weekend away on the bike.

The spacing between the sensor and the ABS timing wheel is important. I would not recommend changing that spacing it hasn't changed since the bike was built and it's been working fine. My ABS light came on last year after a dyno tune. The ABS light worked about 6 times intermittently then it stayed on for good. I did clean the front ABS sensor but it made no difference. My bike was at the dealer for a new tire and they saw the ABS light remain on when they test rode it. They hooked it up to the diagnostic software and determined the front ABS sensor was bad. They replaced it, $150 for the sensor, and it's been fine ever since. The front ABS sensor fails far more often than the rear ABS sensor. The dealer, Crockett Powersports in Chattanooga, TN, had the correct ABS sensor in stock.

Yours 'could be' heat related but none the less, something is starting to go bad that worked fine in previous heat cycles.

All the best,

Mark

If it hasnít come back on the condition was temporary, like dirt or water on something. Your call, but Iíd leave that can of worms closed.
