Darn, the ABS light did not go out

Any ideas on trouble shooting this and is it possible to interrogate the trouble codes.
07 sprint ABS.
The light normally goes out once you reach 5 or 6 mph.
it immediately came back on and stayed on.
Has stayed on since.

Thanks

Check the distance between the abs ring on the rotor to the sensor. When I bought mine, same thing - the previous owner changed the front tire and dropped the wheel beveling the reluctor ring (is that what it's called?). My mechanic removed it and flattened it in his press and after putting it back, all was good in the world. The light went out and the ABS worked again.

If its not the reluctor ring, check the wires to the sensors. But even a slight bend in the rings will throw it off. Good luck.

Don't trust your eyes. Pull the rings and lay them on a table or flat area. That's the only way to tell. Spinning the wheel while observing the distance b/w the ring and sensor is a good first test...

Good luck.

Tried another bike shop. The first one looked and said there were no trouble codes up, then mentioned they were looking at the engine ECU. I didn't enlighten them just went to another shop. These guys knew that there are two ecm's on an ABS model and the trouble code is 1611 - open circuit or short on the front wheel sensor.

Everything looks ok so it will be close inspection from here on in.
One suspicious point is the wiring at the side of the triple clamp, it is in a piece of sleving that appears to be flexing on one point, possibly broken the wires internally.

will post what I find.
Cheers.

To read ABS trouble codes from the Nissin ECU you can use a piece of software called DealerTool. If you plan on doing you own maintenance it's also the only way to properly bleed the ABS system as described in this post.
