ABS test fail now won't start! A WTF moment
So the ABS light on my 2007 bike was staying on, lotsa info in this forum about testing coupler. Bought one (ouch) from Japan and looked for matching coupler behind battery, found it down the fairing (at least its the only thing that looks right! 4 wires, Coupler bridges sky blue and black.) Checked out forums here, youtube guy. Followed the procedure: battery 12.8+; kill off, ignition onx 2 secs, start button x 4 secs, brakes on. nothing, not a thing. no pulse no codes no nothing. repeat.. no better.
It gets worse.. gave it a break, checked starting... kicks over but not firing up. not starting plus abs light still on.
clearly not my day.
love to hear any ideas!
any many thanks for the info already posted in this rolling encyclopedia!
