    The brake light stays on all of the time... I cannot get it to go off for anything in the world. It is coming from the Back BRAKE, because I disconnected the front brake plug trying to find the problem.

FI lights stays on, popped on last night while

FI means fuel injection and your bikes computer is picking up a problem and letting you know that maintenance has to be performed for peak efficiency. you can go to the dealer and have them read the codes and you can decide whose going to do the repairs. or just try some Seafoam, buy it at Autozone pour 1/3 to 2 gallons fuel, it wont hurt it, and ride it around getting on every once in awhile, for about 10 to 15 miles, then you might have to disconnect the battery to reset the light...these are just the cheapest things to try. let me get some feedback on this thanks!

When I first start riding the bike, the brake lights work. After riding for a while, the brake lights stays on. When the the bike has had a chance to cool off, the brake lights work. After riding for an...

The brake light switch should be mounted to the back side of the rear brake pedal housing. My best guess is that the brake switch is heating up when the engine heats up, and is sticking. Clean the exposed part of the shaft of the brake switch plunger and give it a squirt of WD-40, Teflon, or other lubricant where it goes into the housing. Work it manually a few times to distribute the lubricant. If that doesn't do it, take the switch off and disassemble it carefully. Assuming the little spring and contactor don't go flying off and get lost, you should be able to clean and reassemble the switch. Seeing as how I have big fat fingers, poor close up vision without bifocals, and limited patience, I would suggest just buying a new switch just to save on the aggravation.

My brake lights stay on on my Toyota and the

Try pulling your brake pedal up and see if that causes the brake lights to turn off. The problem is most likely a bad brake switch that fits up under your dash and is attached to your pedal, it may not be releasing right and causing your lights to stay on. Hope this helps. Let me know how it goes and I will see if I can help some more if needed...

Abs light flashing alternatively when putting ignition on

There is a simple way to fix it as I've discovered. Start your bike, if lights are flashing ride for a mile or two applying the rear brake a few times. Stop the bike and place on centre stand. switch off motor then restart. Your flashing lights should have gone. Why the flashing happens is if you ride and use your rear brake rarely and then your bike sits for a day or two without use your rear brake assembly fully retracts, ie pads away from disc and ABS gizzmos inactive. The ABS sensor unit then reports extended non use pattern to the onboard 'brain' which activates the warning mode of flashing lights. This has worked for me several times over the last 5 years when its occured. Full ABS operations return. Tried it on a mates bike and it fixed same problem on his.

My 2003 1200 gt warning light comes on when I touch the brakes either front or rear and stays on. If I don't touch brakes it doesn't come on. the fluid in the rear reservoir got down to the min level and I...

Rene - the manual recommends having the break system checked immediately if the reservoir drops below MIN. It has happened to me once were the warning light was staying on and after carefully riding it down the street in my subdivision the warning light went away.

However if it does not go out after the self diagnostic - there is a possibility the ABS is not functioning and you are only left with a RESIDUAL BRAKING FUNCTION which helps slow the bike but not safe for riding. I would take it to the dealer if the warning stays on and for safety sake -- have it towed.
