    2008 GT brake pad indicators

    My bike started with the intermittent dash warning light for brake pads around 8K miles, and finally went steady last fall around 15k.

    I changed the brake pads this spring (front left pads were thin, but they are the only ones without the sensor), fiddled with how the wires were secured, and the light didn't go off. Finally concluded that the wiring was bad......I snipped both front and rear wires near their respective connectors, soldered and heat-shrinked the ends, verified circuit continuity, and re-installed. Dash light is still on.

    How does the dash light get reset? Will GS911 do it (I have one arriving in the mail tomorrow), will it reset itself after a few start/stop sequences, or is this a dealer-only reset?

    Shortest thread ever

    Disregard. I found something on k-bikes.com indicating that the light will reset after 3 trips above 30mph, and just verified it with my own bike.
