Question about 2005 BMW R 1200 C Montauk
Hello, I bought a 2004 r1200c montauk just before christmas, I rode it for 2 days then I shipped it from arizona to ohio it was not delivered till 1-17, I charged the battery then I started the bike, there is a red light blinking that say "brake failure", this light does blink very quick when I turn the ignition on for around 1.5 seconds then it goes away, but now it does the same thing then it keeps blinking slower, any body have an idea let me know please
Your ABS is off line - this can happen when the battery gets weak or when the wheels spin at different rates while the engine is running. In fact, you can force this error condition to happen while the bike is up on your service (Wunderlich) stand: Turn on the engine, shift into first gear (be careful here). Spin the front tire in the opposite direction of travel. the ABS will come off line and the lights will flash. You generally have to take the bike over to the shop to have this reset, but there is an alternative. There is a company in South Africa called Hex Code that makes a device called the GS-911. You can hook this up to your wiring harness and connect to it with a computer, Windows Mobile device or a Blackberry via Bluetooth. From the software interface, you can reset codes like your ABS error as well as view and log other values. Check out the site: http://www.gs911usa.com/ They have a video showing the whole enchilada. Also, go over to Chromeheads.org and sign up. See you there - my ID is grant111 - send me a PM!
