My Strom left me stranded :(
Of course this would happen the day after I post up on Facebook what a great bike its been over the last 73000 miles....
I was riding in to work this morning on my 2012 650 when the bike died leaving me stranded on the 405 for 3 hours wile I waited for a tow truck. My ABS has been playing up in the rain (see other threads) but it's never died on me. This mornings failure was catastrophic. I can get the dash to light up by wiggling the connector on the ABS unit behind the shock but I have a "check something" code up on the dash and it won't start. I'll nip out and take some pics to add in moment but I wondered if anyone knows where I should start with this?
I'm assuming the check - something is an error code I'll have to pull by putting it in dealer mode, no? I can't get my fat mitt in to actually pull the ABS plug so it will have to wait til I get it home later tonight before I can pull the battery tray to access it.
Can anyone confirm that the bike wont run if the ABS plug is disconnected?
RESOLVED: JUMP TO POST #15 TO SEE THE ISSUE
