ABS woes

My '07 GT started flashing the dreaded "Brake Failure" last year. I took it in to the local shop, they waved their magic wand and the brakes held up for a couple of thousand miles. Then it started at it again, so I went ahead and had the Module Master fix done.

This coincided with the big 36k service, so it feels like I just bought an entire new bike.

Crossing fingers...

Re: ABS woes

Reporting back after a couple of months of use, including a number of 500+ mile days. The ABS is doing just fine. I donít know if itís my hopefulness or if itís actually so, but the rebuild seems to have smoothed out the pulsations I used to feel when braking. They used to be very pronounced, especially when braking lightly. Now I donít feel anything when braking lightly, and get just a hint of pulsation when I brake hard. I donít know if thatís due to the module rebuild, or how the lines were bled, but it feels good! Iím super happy with the repair.
