Hello again everybody,
Fresh from my adventures with clutch cables (
to the experts on here for their help with that) I have bravely progressed through changing the oil (and I am SO glad I hadn't seen the infamous oil change thread on here first!) and am now into advanced mode, which is fault finding the ABS.
Thanks to Towerman and his stash of invaluable handbooks, I have got the fault codes up on the ABS LED and am heartened to find code 45, "Rear wheel rotation sensor wiring (wiring shorted or open, connector bad connection)". Heartened as it means the really expensive controller is at least alive and kicking
So working through the handbooks, I need to get at the ABS hydraulic unit connector and the rear wheel rotation sensor connector.
Now try as I might, I can't get at the rear wheel sensor connector as it is buried in the engine, and I cant even see the hydraulic unit connector. I think I can see the top of the unit, right forward underneath the seat. Am I missing something that allows me to get at these? I suspect the sensor is the most likely culprit but before I buy a new one I will check the looms in case, but even if I buy a new one I have to get at the rear wheel connector to connect it.
I thought I read in the manual about removing the fuel tank for access but I can't now find the relevant passage, so I'm not sure I need to and having only just filled it I am reluctant to take it off right now. If anyone knows a way forward I would appreciate any pointers.
(The bike is a 2006 model by the way)
