Pure guess here.Is the tyre rotation correct?ABS sensor wire Ok.Front & rear.
So going to be honest here - No I didn't - and yes I wiggled it a bit to put back the wheel, removed the ABS sensor and it looks visually perfect without a scratch - also I really doubt you can break it without getting ABS warning light on , so not sure what is up.Did you remove the ABS sensor before removing the wheel ?
They are easily damaged if you don't but I would expect a fault ligh on if that is the issue.
Are you sure it is early,
I would expect less traction from your new tires so the wheel will lock up easier.
As the tire beds in that should improve a little but a knoby tire will lock easier on a hard surface than a tire with a less aggressive tread.
Interesting - rolling the wheel on the stand and pressing the brake doesn't make a sound - looks solid - BUT WITH THIS SAID - i assume it might cause the feeling i haveSounds like the caliper bracket is not in the slot. Bike off and in neutral, get it rolling backwards and hit the rear brake, then go forward and hit it...if it clunks, it's not in the slot, and you will have to pull the axle to fix it.
Rolex is right, always remove the ABS pick up sensor when taking off the wheels, or damage can occur.
are the new tires scrubbed in yet?
if not go do a couple hundred cautious miles
How difficult/ easy it to engage? I mean i barley press it and abs is engagedI’ve got Shinko 705s on mine and when the rear ABS engages, it’s like I‘m on ice. Almost zero braking effect. Quite frankly, I don’t see how the rear ABS on our bikes is any better than just locking it up.
its better because it allows you to keep control of the bikes direction while stopping, rather than the rear wheel coming out from underneath you as you try to avoid whatever made you cram on the brakes.Quite frankly, I don’t see how the rear ABS on our bikes is any better than just locking it up.
