    ABS light started flashing. Engine warning light on.

    Hello,

    When I was commuting back from work yesterday, I realised that the ABS light started flashing whenever the road got a bit bumpy.

    I was going pretty slow speed and wasnít touching the brake. The issue got worse and worse today and eventually the warning light showing an engine turned on.

    I didnít do any changes to the bike recently. No new tyres etc. Does anyone have an idea what this could be?

    Cheers,
    Fabian

    Check that there is no crap lodged between the ABS rings and the sensor(front and rear)

    For what itís worth... I had a broken wire on the front abs sensor right where it bends back and forth when you turn the handle bars.
    Every engine warning light Iíve had has been improper signal from the side stand.
    I believe investing in a diagnostic tool is a good idea. I just plug in the GS 911 and see for myself.

    Apparently one of the wires connected to the battery were loose. Just tightened it. Problem solved.

    This is surprisingly common. It's the first thing to check if you're having any issues with the bike's electronics.
