2012 XCT - Intermittent Problem with ABS
I have a 2012 XCT that has given me no problem with the ABS until a recent trip. I got on the bike in the morning, started it, and the ABS light came on like it always does. Normally, it shuts off as soon as I get moving - the manual says the light shuts off at 6 mph and the ABS is then working. That morning, the ABS light stayed on. The morning was cool (~53 F) but dry. An hour later, I turned the bike off and on again (at the key) and when I took off the ABS light went out like normal. Hmm, weird glitch?
Later in the day after riding in the rain for a while, the ABS light came back on. This time turning the bike off and on again at the key did not fix the light problem. Then a couple hours later, after a stop with the bike turned off, the ABS light went out. Then again an hour later, while riding, the ABS light came back on.
Two days later, the ABS light works normally - comes on when bike is started and goes off when reaching 6 mph.
Note that this probelm first occurred in dry conditions and then repeated in rainy conditions. Has anyone else experienced this sort of intermittent problem with the ABS light/system? What was the resolution?
Is it correct that any trouble codes related to the ABS are NOT stored in the normal trouble code "place" and cannot be displayed in the manner of other trouble codes? Rather, a special computer (Victory calls this something like digital technician) must be used to access the ABS trouble codes.
Thanks and G'day,
