Had a 'pucker moment' yesterday evening when running errands. Pulled on the front brake lever and woh-mama nothing happened. Really pulled on the lever, got the bike stopped, got composed and saw my 'Brake Failure' light flashing rapidly. Powered the bike down, waited a moment and re-started. The Brake Failure light flashed slowly for a second or two and then went back to the much faster flash mode.
No clue why this would be happening. Working flawless up to now, then this out of the blue.
Servos not whirring (or working), I nursed the bike home on residual braking and parked it. Started it up again this morning sort of hoping that the bike had come to its senses overnight, but no go - same thing.
So, does this mean that I have just bought a $2300 or so controller?
Are there other things that could be the cause? I did a brake flush last fall and all has seemed fine until now. I haven't pulled the fuel tank off to look at the fluid levels in the controller - could this be a possibility? Fuses all look OK. Should I disconnect the battery/pull a fuse for a while in an attempt to reset the module?
Is there a diagnostic sequence I should follow before making my way to the dealer?
I'm thankful that this occured in a situation where I could maintain control and close to home. Nevertheless I'll be really bummed if I have to spend 1/3 to 1/2 of the bikes total value getting this fixed, ....
